    Thanks for this list. However, I believe the records for (UAAP Juniors) 800m and 1500m were made on 1-27-1981 and 1-26-1981, respectively, not 1999.

  2. Louie Grey says:

    Is a 17.64 sec time by a 14 y/o in the 110 HH impressive nowadays? How does this compare to other kids in his age group?

    • @Louie: that time is competitive in the philippines. In fact, that time wouldve placed 4th in both 2012 UAAP & NCAA juniors finals

    • pirieandrew says:

      I would say that time is decent, not exactly impressive. But at 14 y/o its very difficult to tell how an athlete will progress at such an early age of development

      The other factor is what height was being used? as UAAP & NCAA high schoolers jump over junior height of .991 cm. Whereas in other countries such as Australia and New Zealand kids as young as 14 would be using youth height at .984 cm.

      All i suggest is more practice and focus on technique.

  3. pirieandrew says:

    thanks for these records, Miler. I will review them and add to my stat lists as i have the results from 08,09, and 2010 that i gave to Joboy. And partial results from 2001 to 2005.

  4. pirieandrew says:

    Herida did not run 10.40 et in 2008, i have the official results at home and his time is 10.98et, 10.4 must be the hand time.

      • pirieandrew says:

        et was 10.92 it was done in the heats of the UAAP 2008.

        Ralph Soguilon ran 10.56et back in 2002.

        Take into consideration with the sprint events. Hand Times were used up until 2001, when they brought in electronics and there was no wind gauge in use up until between 2007 to 2008.

    Cool blog! Thanks for this! I found it through Louie Grey, and like him it certainly brought back a lot of memories. Great reminder as well for me to start getting back in shape. What you have here is really inspiring! 🙂

  6. Louie Grey says:

    Great blog! Brought back a lot of memories. It is very interesting to note how successfully the genes were transferred, in reference to the Unso brothers, sons of the great 110 m HH legend, very nice & humble Renato Unso. I used to compete for UP way back 1977 to 1979 in the 110 HH, 400 LH, long jump, pole vault & high jump. My best long jump in winning the gold was 6.85 meters, still competitive for this season. Thanks for your blog.

    • Many thanks Louie Grey! You’re right with the Unsos, very talented folks. But youre also a talented one as 6.85meters fo a long jump is still very competitive nowadays. You might know Manny Calipes of UST, he competed in the 400m LH back in 79. He’s the coach of UST today. Many thanks for the visit!

    • Louie Grey says:

      I was in awe with the progress of the athletes performance nowadays especially in those events I had a hand on. I will pass on your blogsite to my former teamates from both UP & LSGH, and track friends from Ateneo who will surely enjoy the updates in this sport. I am just not sure how popular track is in the schools are nowadays, but I would surely love to see media coverage of the UAAP & NCAA in the future.

      • @louie grey : It will be a great pleasure if you will do that sir. Yes let’s help each other in promoting athletics. Its popularity has waned since the retirement of the Gintong Alay players. No marquee names, no rivalries to ignite interest among the masses.

        You’ll be surprise with the new techniques in training. Plyometrics is the most important base training nowadays. Then interval training dominates almost all workouts of not just the runners, but even jumpers and throwers.

      • James Wilson says:

        Pinoyhalfmiler, thanks for this site. I’m one of those Louie sent to this page. Any chance you have a list of NCAA records? I’ll definitely checking this page regularly.

      • Hi James, thanks for visiting my blog. I don’t have a copy yet of the NCAA records, but I’m planning to get hold of them this summer. Will post them as soon as I have them. Many thanks.

    • FLapid says:

      Cool blog. I ran for ADMU 1977 thru 1980, including against Louie Grey in the 400LH. Nestor Trampe was the hotshot back then. I believe he ran for UE…

      • Thanks for the compliments. Then I think you ran against Manny Calipes of UST. He ran in the 400 LH back then. He’s the coach of said school now.

      • FLapid says:

        The name Manny Calipes is vaguely familiar, but I am sure I would recognize him on sight. There really wasn’t a lot of fraternization among the runners from different schools, which is unfortunate since there are very few T&F afficionados to begin with, and more mingling might have contributed to formation of either training buddies or friendly rivalries.

        Part of the problem is there were only two UAAP meets back then, and no other competitions during the season. Kinda tough to train for so long for only two chances to compete. Tough to get any real progression of improvement in PBs that way, to keep you motivated. I’ve lived in the US for 30 years now, and raised my kids here, and during track season they get to participate in competitions almost weekly – up to 20 meets per year. It would do well for the track coaches at the different schools in RP to organize smaller and more frequent dual meets (or 3-school meets), leading up to the UAAPs.

        In perusing the UAAP results, I noticed that they now have a Junior division. (Is that age-based? I’m guessing 18 yrs is the cut-off?) I think a Junior division is a real good thing, as it allows the younger athletes and some of the marginal athletes to gain experience running competitively, have fun, and stay motivated.

        I myself have begun running again after a 30-year break, and will be running the Chicago Marathon in October (assuming my knees cooperate).

        Good luck with your blog – it’s an admirable effort in support of T&F in RP.

      • Flapid, thanks for visiting the blog. RP Athletics is still light years away as compared to the US. One major problem here is the marketing of the sports. On the average, only 20 students per university are involved in the sports. Its a classic chicken and egg situation. The youngsters don’t see any marquee player to emulate. Hence, corporate sponsors shy away from the sports. In turn, very few kids are attracted to the sports.

        Plus of course, a leadership with no vision. I could go on with a list of things that needed to be changed in Philippine Athletics. Hopefully, this blog will motivate even just a single soul, who can eventually rescue our sports. And change thousands of lives in the future.

        Junior division in the UAAP and NCAA are for high school students. Although I am not sure what age is the cut off. I guess 18 y.o. is the cut off as well.

        Great to hear retired track athletes getting into the sports again. I really regretted that i stopped running for 14 years. Its so hard to go back to the competitive level you once enjoyed. But better late than never.

        Keep in touch. And goodluck to your kids!

        Hi Flapid!

        I’m an Ateneo alumnus myself. I competed for 2 years as a junior and 5 years in the college ranks.

        The Junior division caters specifically to high school students.

        We have more track meets now than the two UAAP meets at your time (they reduced the UAAP to one single Championships, however). A college-level athlete can compete at 2-3 meets before the UAAP, on average. Other meets aside from the UAAP (or the NCAA, PRISAA, SQUAA) include the National Open, the National University Games, the Chinese Meet and those track tournaments organized by the international schools.

        The PATAFA Weekly Relays is the main tune-up competition (although its fate is still uncertain due to the dearth in sponsors).

        The Junior guys have the Palarong Pambansa, the Milo Little Olympics and PRADA (a league among private schools).

      • pirieandrew says:

        I agree that more cooperation between schools is required. Than UAAP coaches gripping there training journals very close to there chests and whispering “Its mine my precious!!!”.
        If the weekly relays is cancelled a viable alternative, is that each NCAA School and UAAP school take it in turns to conduct a time trial for one week of the year and invite the other schools to join. In this situation perhaps the athletes can act as officials
        e.g. 1 group runs, 1 group does the timing and then alternate.
        aswell.. they cant do any worse than the current bunch of officials.

  7. Joboy Quintos says:

    I have UAAP track results for 5 seasons, i think, including the latest one. Thanks to Andrew Pirie. I can email it to you if you want.

  8. Joboy Quintos says:

    Thanks for posting this. Great blog, btw.

    I’m a former UAAP athlete too. I competed in the 110 highs for Ateneo (2003 – 2008). More power to your blog.

    • Many thanks for visiting my blog Joboy. 110 HH for men in UAAP this 2010 was won by an Atenean, Michael Vaugn Mendoza with a time of 15.04. Will post the complete results within the week. Please help me promote athletics bro, our sports is in dire need of help and attention.

      BTW, I was with Coach Ed Sediego 4 days ago during our Varsity Alumni Homecoming at the UST Gym. Will txt him about you. Regards and thanks again.
