UAAP 85 Fencing: Catantans shine for UST Women’s, UE Girls


UNIVERSITY of Santo Tomas set its golden double bid in motion for the collegiate level of the UAAP Season 85 Fencing Championships, Thursday at the UST Quadricentennial Pavilion Arena in Manila.

Allysah Catantan took the women’s first gold of the tournament — in foil individual — to put the Lady Fencers in the lead, winning over University of the East’s Maricar Matienzo, 15-9

“Sa tingin ko po, ituloy lang namin kung paano kami ngayon,” the 19-year-old standout shared.

Catantan added, “Kasi gusto ko po yung crowd eh. Talagang united po kami talaga sa pag-cheer. Malaking bagay po sa kin yung nagchi-cheer talaga sila. Na-feel ko na naniniwala sila sa ‘kin.”

Lady Red Warrior Eytria Olarte and University of the Philippines’ Nami Noro bagged the two bronzes.
