PH Women’s Arnis makes up for dismal first day, sweeps SEAG full contact event

ANGELES CITY, PAMPANGA — After a disappointing first day that only saw one gold in four matches, the Philippine Women’s National Arnis Team bounced back big. 

The quartet of Sheena del Monte, Jeddah Mae Soriano, Ross Monville, and Abegail Abad swept the arnis full contact-padded stick competition, Monday at the Angeles University Foundation Gym here.

Bantamweight Sheena del Monte pounded Vietnam’s Thi Huong Nguyen for the team’s first gold.

Featherweight Jeddah Mae Soriano then followed it up with a shutout of Myanmar’s Maw Maw Oo.

Capping the dominant sweep were lightweight Ross Monville and welterweight Abegail Abad. The two took down Myanmar’s Moe Moe Aye and Vietnam’s Thi Cuc Nguyen, respectively.

During the first day, the women’s arnis team only ended up with one gold, a silver, and two bronzes — including a controversial semis match in one of the matches.

The arnis team looks to bring home more gold in the anyo competition on Tuesday at the same venue.
