    Local bets Caryn Bless Guarde and John Emmanuel Estrope came away with a pair of straight-set victories each to dominate their respective divisions in the Palawan Pawnshop Regional age-group tennis circuit in Isulan, Sultan Kudarat on Sunday. Guarde overpowered Jazelle Madis, 4-2, 4-1, to cop the girls’ 12-and-under plum then scored an equally impressive 4-1, 4-1 rout of Kathlenrey Arandia for the 14-and-U title while Estrope upended top seed Miko Ringia, 5-3, 4-2, to snatch the boys’ 18-and-U diadem at the Isulan Capitol Tennis Club. Estrope, one of the rising stars from Sultan Kudarat, also toppled Janus Ringia of Koronadal, 4-2, 4-1, in the 16-and-U finals to match Guarde’s double victory in the Group 2 tournament sponsored by Palawan Pawnshop through COO Bobby Castro and Technosports/Babolat’s president Guillermo Nocom.
