UAAP 85 MJD: Aaron Reyes, Chino Sy, Rael Abujos power UST to lead

Five-peat seeking University of Santo Tomas held strong to the lead in the men’s division after the first day of the UAAP Season 85 Collegiate Judo Championships Saturday at the Blue Eagle Gym.

The Tiger Judokas amassed 25 points paced by three golds to lead the four-team field, nine points against Season 82 runner-up University of the Philippines’ 16.

“Para sa ‘kin, OK naman po performance ng team. Sa heavyweights po nakuha namin yung mostly gold and silver,” senior and middleweight (under-90 kg.) gold medalist Aaron Reyes shared.

Reyes had to deal with a cut on his eyebrow after getting an accidental headbutt from UP’s Karl Tenorio in their quarterfinal match. The graduating Tiger Judoka eventually won the match and the consequent contests, including the quick final against Arhann Rodil of Ateneo de Manila University to bag the gold.

“Yung sa ‘kin naman, sa performance ko, binuhos ko talaga lahat kasi last playing year ko na. Para sa ‘kin kahit anong mangyari basta manalo,” Reyes said.

De La Salle University’s Malanos and Fighting Maroon Mark Perocho completed the middleweight podium.1C9A9137_UAAP-Season-85-Judo-seniors-mens_L-R-Silver-Carlos-Sandoval-Gold-Chino-Sy-Bronze-Ethan-Nocholas-Quach-Bronze-Laurence-Sy-scaled UAAP 85 MJD: Aaron Reyes, Chino Sy, Rael Abujos power UST to lead ADMU DLSU Judo News UAAP UP UST  - philippine sports news
