UE High School gives Sam Catantan golden send-off

University of the East fashioned out a UAAP Season 82 High School golden double, Friday at the Paco Arena. 

The Junior Warriors gave Samantha Catantan a fitting send-off by winning a ninth consecutive girls crown; meanwhile, their boys’ team achieved a 10th straight title.

Behind Catantan’s heroics, UE rallied past University of Santo Tomas, 45-44, in the girls’ team saber final. It then completed a six-gold sweep with a 45-30 win over UST in the girls’ team epee final.

Catantan emerged as the MVP once more, leaving a lasting legacy for the Junior Warriors’ program.

“Happy ako kay Sam,” expressed UE head coach Amatov Canlas.

UST and De La Salle-Zobel finished second (0-3-6) and third (0-0-3), respectively.

In the boys’ division, MVP Shawn Felipe powered UE to a 45-9 dismantling of UST in the team foil final to cap a scintillating five-gold romp.

The Junior Warriors — who also captured two silvers and two bronzes — clinched their 10th straight boys crown as early as last Thursday.

Ateneo added a boys’ team foil bronze to its 1-1-4 haul to finish second. Far Eastern University-Diliman completed the podium with a 0-2-1 tally.
