UP back-to-back cheer-dance champion

MANILA, Philippines?A tribal-inspired theme highlighted by a trademark oblation formation catapulted the University of the Philippines on top for the second straight year.

Throwing in a mix of creativity and gymnastic moves, the UP Pep Squad captured anew the UAAP Cheerdance championship in front of a record 23,443 crowd Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

?I think it?s our theme that made us different,? said UP co-captain Angelica Sison. ?There was a story and a flow in our routine?the preparation for war, the gathering of troops, the practice for battle.?

The Maroons, who foiled the bid of former five-time champ University of Santo Tomas to reclaim the crown, pocketed P195,000 cash and Samsung MP3 players.

?There was a lot of pressure,? said Sison. ?All eyes were on us.?

The UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe, who ruled the contest from 2002 to 2006, settled for second place, worth P120,000, followed by the Far Eastern University Cheering Squad which bagged P80,000.

Coach Lalaine Pereña and choreographer RM Garcia conceptualized the routine of the UP squad.

Ateneo de Manila University finished fourth, followed by Adamson University, University of the East, De La Salle University and National University.
