Queen Dalmacio hailed rookie MVP as UE regains UAAP Women’s Fencing throne


University of the East’s redemption campaign is now complete, having regained the UAAP Season 82 Women’s Fencing throne, Friday at the Paco Arena.

Queendenise Dalmacio led the Lady Warriors in collecting four golds, one silver, and three bronze medals to claim a league-best 13th crown. For this, she was proclaimed Rookie-MVP.

“Actually, magkaka-batch iyan. Sina Queen at Sam (Catantan). Sabay-sabay iyan noong time na ni-recruit ko sila noong mga bata pa talaga ang mga iyan,” said Canlas, who also handled the national team that won two gold medals in the 30th Southeast Asian Games.

“Tumaas din ang level ni Queen magmula noong nakapasok siya sa national team. Naglaro siya ng SEA Games, kaya iba na ang mental toughness niya,” he added.

The 20-year old Dalmacio was impressive, especially while ruling the women’s individual saber event on the second day of competition.

“Hindi ko nga inaasahan na magiging Rookie-MVP siya. Deserved naman niya talaga iyan,” said Canlas.

UE topped De La Salle, 45-36, in the women’s team epee Finals. It then returned in the afternoon with a 45-19 conquest of University of Santo Tomas in the women’s team saber gold medal match.

De La Salle took the runner-up honors with 1-2-1, while last season’s champion Ateneo settled for third with 1-1-2.
