University of the East reigned supreme in the men’s division for the eighth straight year in the UAAP Season 82 Collegiate Fencing Tournament, Friday at the Paco Arena.

The Red Warriors bested Ateneo, 45-42, in the men’s team foil finals to complete a five-gold, one-silver medal haul for their 14th title overall.

Sammuel Tranquilan exited UE as a winner, while also capturing his third straight MVP award.

“Marami namam tayong mga rising stars na parating. Tuloy-tuloy naman kaming nagte-training mula sa ilalim. ‘Yung transition talaga namin, malalim,” said UE coach Amatov Canlas.

Meanwhile, the Blue Eagles finished second in the men’s side with a 1-3-2 haul. The Green Fencers had a 0-1-5 tally in third place.

“Happy ako sa performance ng team. Taon-taon naman ganito ang nangyari,” said Canlas.
