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.
