PH softball teams win openers

Cebuana Lhuillier-backed RP Blu Girls’ title-defense in the ongoing Southeast Asian Games is off to a flying start after beating Singapore 6-0.   

 “I’m confident of the girls’ chances of winning the SEAG gold medal again.  They are well-prepared for this tournament,” said Jean Henri Lhuillier, president of Cebuana Lhuillier and ASAPHIL.

 The RP Blu Girls has made waves the past three years in the world stage with impressive performances in the World Cup, Canada Cup, and Asian Championships boasting of victories over top 10 teams such as Australia, Canada, China, Chinese-Taipei and Mexico, among others. 

 “The girls played well today especially in our defense. We’re all confident we will be able to retain the gold medal in front of our countrymen.  Sir Jean Henri Lhuillier has given everything we need to prepare the whole team for this battle, said RP Blu Girls head coach Randy Dizer.

Meanwhile, the similarly Cebuana Lhuillier-backed RP Blu Boys’ title-defense in the ongoing Southeast Asian Games is also off to a flying start after beating Thailand, 12-0.

Lhuillier said he was likewise confident of the Blu Boys’ chances of winning the SEAG gold medal again because they are as well-prepared as the Blu Girls.

The RP Blu Boys have been busy competing the past two years in the world stage including the Makassar Open International Softball in Makassar, Indonesia; Men’s Softball Asian Championship in Jakarta, Indonesia; and World Men’s Softball Championship in Prague, Czech Republic.

“The boys played well today especially in our defense. We’re all confident we will be able to retain the gold medal in front of our countrymen.  Sir Jean Henri Lhuillier has given everything we need to prepare the whole team for this battle,” said RP Blu Boys head coach Apol Rosales.
