UST is the UAAP General Champion for the third year in a row in the Collegiate Division and for the fifth year in a row in the High School Division

The UAAP’s general championships are staying in Espana.

University of Sto. Tomas was officially named the General Champions of the Collegiate Division in the Season 81 closing ceremony, Tuesday at MOA Arena.

The black and gold wound up with 279 points built on titles in Men’s and Women’s Beach Volleyball, Men’s and Women’s Judo, and Men’s and Women’s Table Tennis.

That was more than enough to edge out closest competitor De La Salle University’s 260-point total. Then at joint third are Ateneo de Manila University and the University of the Philippines.

This is the third straight year that the Seniors trophy will be coming home to Espana.

That is also where the High School Division trophy is headed as the Tiger Cubs were also recognized as General Champions.

This is their fifth straight year alone atop the leaderboard in the Juniors.
