UST takes fifth consecutive UAAP General Championship

University of Santo Tomas emerged as the UAAP Season 84 general champion, the school’s fifth-straight crown and 45th overall in the collegiate division.

But it was a close battle to the end as the Tigers tallied 84 points in the league’s shortened calendar with just eight events, excluding the cheerdance competition which is not included in the computation.

Their closest contender was National University, which just fell short by three points with 81 points. The Bulldogs did not send a team to the men’s chess event.

In the eight events, UST claimed the championship in half of those, winning gold in poomsae, men’s 3×3 basketball, men’s beach volleyball, and men’s chess.

The Tigers also got silver in women’s 3×3 basketball, fourth place in women’s volleyball, and seventh place in both men’s 5-on-5 basketball and women’s chess.

NU, meanwhile, won gold in the women’s volleyball, women’s chess, and women’s 3×3 basketball tournaments.

This season’s host De La Salle University placed third with 76 points, while University of the Philippines was a close fourth with 71.
