ALEXIE Santos bagged three titles in the Palawan Pawnshop Regional Age Group Tennis Tournament Series 54 at the Mactan Airbase Tennis Court.
Last year, the 14-year-old Santos also won three titles in the Cebu Leg.
Santos, a Grade 8 student of Palawan Hope Christian School and a gold medal winner in the Palarong Pambansa routed Patricia Velez of Davao, 6-0-6-1, to win the Girls 14-Under title. She then beat Alyssa Mae Bornia, 6-4, 6-3, to win the Girls 16-Under title and won by the same score against Shyne Villareal to win the Girls 18-Under title.
“Mahirap ang mga trainings na pinagdaanan ko that is why I expected to really excel in this sport. I believe yung key sa progress ko is time management,” said Santos.
Santos will be joining the series 55 in Consolacion starting next week and hopes she could get a chance to face Jana Pages.
“Malakas si Jana, I consider her as a strong opponent if she decides to join the tournament in Consolacion,” said Santos.
However, John Pages said his daughter will be skipping the tournament because she has review classes for college entrance exams. (ISL)
