“I am very proud of everybody,” UST head coach Rani Ortega said. “What I told the team was they did not train for two weeks but they trained for two years. Kahit nung nag-start yung pandemic, we didn’t stop training. Everybody did their part, having their online program from me and coach Junior (Reyes).

“One good thing about it is they worked on their individual weaknesses and kung saan pwede pa silang mag-improve. Kaya nung nagkita-kita kami, ang sabi lang namin, ‘You are ready and in condition’,” she continued.

University of the Philippines reached its lone podium finish with a silver with Joanna Pauline Jubelag, Adel Julianne Adriano, and Alyssa Louise Caabay recording 8.500, while De La Salle’s Mikee Rose Regala, Zyka Angelica Santiago, and Daphne Ching had 8.400 to claim the bronze.
