Eight universities vie for the 2017 UAAP Cheerdance competition crown on S+A

School spirit will be in full blast once again from inside the Mall of Asia Arena to Filipino households and social media, when all eight universities in the UAAP take the mat in the 2017 UAAP Cheerdance Competition on Saturday (December 2) at 2 pm.

Nikko Ramos, Gretchen Ho, and Angelique Manto will be hosting the country’s most-anticipated cheerdance contest, which will air LIVE on S+A and S+A HD and streamed live on sports.abs-cbn.com.

This year, National University (NU) hopes to repeat, if not exceed its near-flawless run in 2016 to get its fifth consecutive cheerdance crown. Hoping to stand in its way are the De La Salle Animo Squad, the Adamson Pep Squad, the FEU Cheering Squad, the UE Pep Squad, the returning UP Pep Squad, the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe, and the Ateneo Blue Babble Battalion.

Up for grabs this year are special awards “Yamaha Toss Winner” for the clients’ choice Best Toss in the competition, the “Jollibee Inextrahan Pyramid” for the clients’ choice Best Pyramid in the field, and “UAAP Group Stunts champion” for the squad with the best group stunt performance.

The second-runner up of the UAAP Cheerdance Competition will get P140,000 and medals from the UAAP, plus P20,000 from Yamaha; the first-runner up will get P200,000 and medals from the UAAP, plus P25,000 from Yamaha; and the champion will get P340,000 and medals from UAAP plus P30,000 from Yamaha, and P25,000 from Jollibee.

Last year, over 17,000 people trooped to the MoA Arena to watch the competition, which was won by NU with a seamless and highly technical futuristic routine. It also saw great performances from FEU, ADU, UST, UE, DLSU, and ADMU.  With known cheerdance powerhouse UP returning to the fold this year, and the other Pep Squads improving each year, fans can expect a wonderful and inspiring show from all eight squads in the UAAP.

Don’t miss the 2017 UAAP Cheerdance Competition on Saturday (December 2) at 2 pm, LIVE on S+A and S+A HD and streamed live on sports.abs-cbn.com. For updates, visit sports.abs-cbn.com or follow @ABSCBNSports on Facebook and Twitter.

Kabilang sa paglalabanan ng mga eskwela ang special awards tulad ng “Yamaha Toss Winner” para sa clients’ choice Best Toss sa kumpetisyon, ang “Jollibee Inextrahan Pyramid” para sa clients’ choice Best Pyramid, at “UAAP Group Stunts champion” para sa koponang may pinaka-maangas na group stunt performance.

Mag-uuwi ang second-runner up ng UAAP Cheerdance Competition ng P140,000 at mga medalya mula sa UAAP, na may dagdag na P20,000 mula sa Yamaha; para naman sa first-runner up, P200,000, mga medalya mula sa UAAP, at P25,000 galing sa Yamaha ang kanilang mapapanalunan; at sa tatanghaling kampeon, naghihintay ang P340,000, mga medalya mula sa UAAP, kasama ang P30,000 galing sa Yamaha, at P25,000 mula sa Jollibee.

Lagpas 17,000 na fans ang tumungo noong nakaraang taon sa MoA Arena para manood sa kumpetisyon na pinanalo ng NU sa kanilang routine na halos walang paltos. Napanood rin ng fans ang de-kalibreng sayaw at galaw ng FEU, ADU, UST, UE, DLSU, at ADMU.  Sa pagbabalik ng UP, na kilala bilang isang cheerdance powerhouse, at ang patuloy na pag-galing ng bawat Pep Squad kada taon, tiyak na matutuwa muli ang mga manonood sa mga hinandang routine ng walong unibersidad sa UAAP.
