SAMANTHA Catantan powered University of the East girls' foil team to a masterful 45-29 victory over University of Santo Tomas to virtually secure the school's nine-peat with its fourth gold in the UAAP Season 82 fencing tournament Thursday at the Paco Arena.

The Junior Warriors are simply the gold standard in high school play.

UE bested Far Eastern University-Diliman, 45-34, in the team epee final for its fourth gold, virtually securing its 10th straight boys' championship.

But the Junior Warriors (4-2-2) won't have a chance of completing a six-gold sweep in the boys' side.

Ateneo topped UE, 45-42, in the team saber final for its first gold of the tournament.

UE has also won three silver medals.

FEU and De La Salle-Zobel copped the girls' foil bronze.

Ateneo and UST bagged the boys' team epee bronze. UST and FEU, meanwhile, took podium finishes in the boys' team saber event.

Hostilities during the final day of competitions will begin at 8 a.m.
