NU keeps cheerdance throne
Performing last among the participants, the Sampaloc-based cheerdancers mesmerized the crowd with their Pinoy-inspired routine. They garnered a total of 722 points to snare their sixth overall diadem in the last seven years. "There's no such thing as an easy journey. So for NU Pep Squad, isang mahirap at exciting journey for NU Pep Squad. Lahat siguro ng mga bata is worth it 'yung pinagpaguran," NU head coach Ghicka Bernabe said. "Marami kaming occassions na na-miss dahil sa pagta-training, marami kaming sinacrifice na events with our family. And ang sabi ko lang sa kanila ay kailangan maging worth it 'yung lahat ng mga araw na na-miss niyo with your families kasi mas masarap umuwi ng champion ka," she added. On the other hand, the Far Eastern University Cheering Squad channeled its inner Michael Jackson with a thrilling performance to notch 706 points and clinch another first runner-up finish. The Adamson University Pep Squad pulled off a Caribbean-inspired routine that amassed 658.5 points to complete the podium finishers.
