Defending champ Adamson last to perform in UAAP 81 Cheerdance

Event on Saturday at the MOA Arena 2:00 PM – Season 81 Cheerdance Competition The Adamson Pep Squad is hoping that it will indeed save the best for last in the UAAP 81 Cheerdance Competition. Adamson will be the last to perform in the middle of the MOA Arena floor on Saturday and will go all-out to keep the crown even as all of the NU Pep Squad, the UP Pep Squad, and the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe are coming for it. NU, UP, and UST – the most recent winners in the event before Adamson broke through a year ago – have their sights set on reclaiming the throne starting at 2:00 PM. Of course, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, iWant, Facebook, YouTube and via livestream. Last year, the Adamson Pep Squad perfectly executed a 1980s-inspired routine to earn its first-ever gold medal. This year, they will be able to witness their competition before putting on a show. Opening the curtain in this edition of the event will be the UE Pep Squad which is out to build on its third-place finish. They will then be followed by the UP Pep Squad, the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe, the DLSU Animo Squad, the NU Pep Squad, the Ateneo Blue Babble Battalion, and the FEU Cheering Squad before Adamson sets out to put a punctuation mark on the proceedings. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
