UNIVERSITY of Santo Tomas proved that it is still a force to reckon with in the UAAP taekwondo tournament after winning its third consecutive men’s crown recently at the Blue Eagle Gym.
Not to be outdone is National University, which captured its first-ever women’s title after a six-match elimination round sweep.
The Growling Tigers defeated University of the East, 4-3, and University of the Philippines, 6-1, in the final day to finish their season at 5-1.
The Bulldogs also ended up with five wins in six bouts after posting a 4-3 win over La Salle and a 7-0 rout of Ateneo.
It was the Tigers’ league-best 14th men’s crown overall, thanks to the superb performance of middle-heavyweight Aries Capispisan, who was named the season MVP.
Far Eastern University finished third with a 4-2 card.
