AFTER the Loyola Cup, local cage fans can look forward to the Jolas Cup and the 1st Magis Cup this summer at the Xavier University gym in Cagayan de Oro City.

Sportsman Mark Vallecer is teaming up with Javi Paras in forming the Magis Cup to further the development of young in-school athletes in the city.

“Kay not only sa private side we’re also inviting the public schools to join the competition. And like the Loyola Cup, dili lang basketball aduna gihapoy volleyball kining among gimugna nga 1st Magis Cup,” said Vallecer, quite elated that the program also drew the support of Xavier University.


Vallecer said they are targeting the 10 years old up to 17-under athletes for the ambitious program’s maiden season.

The Magis Cup, Vallecer said, is patterned after the Milo Best’s pasarelle type with different roster of players in the first three quarters.

He said the innovation gives even bench warmers a longer playing time. (LLS)
