UAAP 85 WTK: Laila Delo, Reign Ragutana lead way as UST dethrones NU


University of Santo Tomas regained the UAAP women’s taekwondo throne after nine years, completing a 6-0 sweep of the Season 85 competition, Thursday at the Blue Eagle Gym.

The Female Tiger Jins completed their dominant run with a rousing 6-1 win over the previous four-peat champion National University.

“We’re overjoyed, especially after the pandemic. As you know, lahat naman ng teams naghanda, Pero yung team kasi namin — even during the pandemic –kahit na online yung setting, kahit hindi namin gusto yung online, we’re still training during that time,” UST coach Gershon Bautista said.

UST bucked a match loss to take the women’s title after Realis Tabiando (5-0) took down Jubilee Briones (3-2), 2-0 (2-1, 3-2) in the featherweight (under-62 kg) match.

National team stalwart Veronica Garces (5-0) pulled one back for the Lady Bulldogs in the flyweight (under-46 kg) match against Angelica Valdez (3-2) in two rounds, 3-3, 5-3, but it was the last time the former champions took a match over the Tiger Jins.UAAP-S85-Taekwondo-Seniors-Kyorugi-Women-Laila-Delo UAAP 85 WTK: Laila Delo, Reign Ragutana lead way as UST dethrones NU ADMU DLSU FEU News NU Taekwondo UAAP UP UST  - philippine sports news
