UAAP 85 Fencing: UE virtually clinches men’s, boys’ tournament as women’s, girls’ take lead

University of the East made strides in acquiring another quadruple crown as the men’s and boys’ teams virtually locked the title in the UAAP Season 85 Fencing Championships, Saturday at the UST Quadricentennial Pavilion Arena in Manila.

RJ Perez flexed his experience against Enzo Bautista of University of the Philippines to knot the men’s epee team semifinal to 38, before individual titlist Francis Felipe stopped Dale Gonzales to complete a come-from-behind win, 45-41.

From there, the Red Warriors denied individual silver medalist Darylle Lumahan and the rest of the De La Salle University quartet to clinch the gold in the event, 45-40, and the ninth straight championship.

“Masarap kasi alam mong pinaghirapan mo,” coach Rufelrino Endriano said of their road to keeping the title.

He added, “Alam mo na may competition, mas masarap yon. Kesa sa hindi pa nagsisimula, alam mong kayo na mananalo.”
