Hope Christian School-Legazpi’s Trump Luistro and Susan Papa Swim Academy’s Marcus Jared Dula dominated their respective age-bands to head the Most Outstanding Swimmer (MOS) winners in the boys’ division of the 167th Philippine Swimming League (PSL) National Series–PSL Christmas Cracker 2019 held at the Diliman Preparatory School swimming pool in Quezon City.
Luistro got 97 points in claiming the top honors in the boys’ 11-year division while Dula had a perfect 100-point showing to win the MOS award in the boys’ 7-year class of the tournament supported by The Manila Times.
Palarong Pambansa multi-gold medallist Marc Bryan Dula of Masville National High School (boys’ 12-year), Nathan Tumbagahan of Makati Cembo Swim Team (boys’ 8-year) and Marcus Ali Bautista (boys’ 6-under) likewise earned their respective MOS plums.

“It’s not really a good year for Philippine Swimming League but we are happy that we ended it strong with this competition. We thanked all those who stayed with us especially Sen. Nikki Coseteng — our major backer,” said PSL president Alexandre Papa.
Susan Papa Swim Academy bagged the overall title with 1,837 points while San Carlos City Searingans wound up second with 1,450 and Diliman Preparatory School earned the third-place honors with 729 points.
