UAAP 85 HSJD: UST boys, girls judokas dominate day 1


University of Santo Tomas stamped its class after the first day of the UAAP Season 85 High School Judo Championships to lead both the girls’ and boys’ divisions Saturday at the Blue Eagle Gym.

Runner-up in the most recent competition in 2020, the Junior Tiger Judokas amassed 37 points on four golds to put themselves way ahead of the pack, with De La Salle-Zobel the only one breaking a flawless UST run with three markers.

Margaret Fajardo dominated teammate Mariah Lua and DLSZ’s Rochelle Goitia in the round-robin matches to take the heavyweight (over-78 kg) gold. Lua took the silver with her win against Goitia in their own encounter.
