UAAP 85 HSSW: UST boys break league-record in 4×200 free

University of Santo Tomas stormed out of the gates to start its title-retention bids in both the Boys’ and Girls’ divisions at the UAAP Season 85 Swimming Championships, Thursday at the Teofilo Yldefonso Swimming Pool in Malate, Manila.

The Junior Tigersharks closed the day with a rousing finish, taking the boys’ 4×200-meter freestyle relay with a new UAAP best 8:15.22 with swimmers Hugh Parto, Terrence Delvo, Renz Santos, and Nicholas Radovan. They broke the previous record set also by their seniors in 2018 ahead of lone opponents Ateneo’s 9:04.45 to finish the day with 134 points and so far in front of the Blue Eagles’ 74.

Their girl counterparts likewise took the event’s gold with 9:52.62 way ahead of their lone competitor University of the Philippines Integrated School which finished with 11:47.63. The Junior Lady Tigersharks stood miles ahead of second-running UPIS in the team standings at 127 against the latter’s 47.

Ateneo rookies Lora Amoguis and Ivo Enot showed their promise, leading the Blue Eagles’ girls and boys into the second and third spots.
