SIBLINGS Kheith Rhynne and Khevine Cruz continued to establish their place in table tennis community pulling off yet another convincing win in their respective class in the FESSAP National Age Group Table Tennis Championships recently at the Robinson’s Novaliches, Quezon City.

The 16-year-old Kheith fortified her hold for the No.1 in the National women’s ranking with another double victory as she dominated both the women’s open and mixed non-rank class against the toughest netters in the country in the competition serving as selection for the Philippine Team off to the Universiade Games next year.

Playing under the banner of PCAF/Beyond Help, the Vietnam SEA Games veteran blanked Sendrina Balatbat of All-Star Legend-Army in straight set in the Finals to claim the women’s diadem of the tournament backed by Table Tennis National Development (TATAND), Joola and TotoPol Fish Broker.  In the mixed non-rank class, she beat Matt Andrew Ramos of University of Makati, 2-1.

Khevin, on the other hand, claimed the title in the boys Mini Cadet 13Under defeating Archilles Maminta of Spin Master Urdaneta, 2-1, but settled for the silver in the cadet 16under via a1-2 loss to CJ Yamson of Star Power/La Salle.

The 13-year-old Khevin followed the footstep of her older sister with a silver medal finish in his first world junior championship last August.

“Iba ang kapaligiran kapag naglalaro ang magkapatid lalo na sa Finals. This is good for table tennis may bagong idolo sa sports at may future tayo sa international competitions,” said organizer and former athlete/coach Julius Esposo.

World Championship veteran John Russel Misal denied Kheith Rhynne for a triple gold beating the China-trained rival in the mixed gender open class, 2-1.

In the other finals result, Jeremiah Raniel Claudio of Bulakenyong Pingpongero beat Jillian Fadriquela in the Boys Hope 10U; Philip Uy of TATAND claimed the gold in mixed veterans 50-over defeating Joseph Abrigo of Team FCTTA, while former TATAND Chairman Charlie Lim finished second runner-up.
