September 15, 2013 – The much awaited annual one-day event for the 2013 University Athletic Association of the Philippines Cheerdance Competition was held at the Mall of Asia Arena. Eight universities, (Far Eastern University, University of the Philippines, University of Santo Tomas, University of the East, Ateneo de Manila, De La Salle University, Adamson University and National University) came and participated the event and entertained us with their all new and fresh concepts and themes today.
Every team shared their jaw-dropping performances. As we recall, University of the Philippines Pep Squad holds the championship title for three consecutive years in cheerdancing competition but now dethroned by the genie themed National University Squadron who performed their breathtaking stunts and lifts and was very much applauded by the crowd. NU earned an overall total score of 696.5 followed by the party themed UP who stepped down to the 1st place in 620.5 and military themed DLSU placed the 2nd in 596.5 points.
The NU stunt group also won the 1st place in the Stunt Competition, followed by Far Eastern University in the 2nd place and University of Santo Tomas for the 3rd place, while DLSU’s Miss Ana de Leon won as the Samsung Stunner.
Winners received medals, trophies and cash prizes, and Samsung, as one of the sponsor of the event, gave away laptop each for the winning groups.
