A PUMPED-up Adamson Pep Squad hopes to make it two in a row in the UAAP cheerdance competition before an expected SRO-only crowd today at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Based on the Adamsonians-only preview of this year’s routine at their school gym last Wednesday, coach Jam Lorenzo is happy on what he saw and hopes it will carry on in the league’s most-anticipated special event set at 2 p.m.
The Falcons will be the last in the order of performance.
“Thank you sa safe run Lord,” said Lorenzo on his Twitter account.
Running with a Roaring Falcons theme and rallying on the hashtag #OrangeIsTheNewBlue, Adamson is pulling all the stops in its quest to become the fifth school to win two cheerdance titles.
In one of the most competitive contests ever last year, the Falcons delivered a near-flawless, entertaining performance on its throwback-inspired routine to clinch the bragging rights as the league’s best cheerdance squad.
With 663.50 points, Adamson bested University of Santo Tomas Salinggawi Dance Troupe and University of the East Pep Squad.
Out to regain the throne is National University Pep Squad, which ended its four-year reign last season after finishing fourth place.
After capturing their first podium finish ever, the Warriors are looming to be one of the Falcons’ biggest threats, as they ready to rock and paint the Pasay venue red.
Being the first performer, history is not on UE’s side though. Since the cheerdance competitions started in 1994, no school which is No. 1 on order of performance has won the championship.
