The 2009 UAAP Samsung Cheerdance Competition was held at the Big Dome yesterday (Sept 13, 2009). Host FEU is the new UAAP Samsung Cheer Dance champion, while Ateneo and UP followed respectively.

I was a bit busy yesterday so I was unable to watch the whole 2009 UAAP Cheerdance Competition that was held at the Araneta Coliseum and aired live through Studio 23. But I watched a decent part of it that makes me say that the winner should not be the Far Eastern University, who are coincidentally also this years host of UAAP Season 73.

UP is not the UAAP Cheerdance Champion anymore

The University of the Philippines might not be the toughest basketball team that plays in the UAAP, but they’ve proven several times to be a upset team this year. Confident of having bagged a couple of championships in the Samsung Cheerdance Competition over the past years, it wasn’t to be in favor of them this time around as they only ranked third best as the second runner up of the UAAP Cheerdance Competition.

The Blue Babble Battalion keeps knocking

Consistent runner up Ateneo de Manila dubbed as the Blue Bubble continued their consistency as runner up as they landed a notch above last years champions as the first runner up, thus the second best in 2009. Let’s see how they’ll do next year, maybe, just maybe, the title will fall for the Blue Eagles.

The FEU Tamaraws just performed excellent. Well, I have to note that, but it wasn’t anything worth of being the first placer for this year, because their moves have been hybrid moves of other cheering squads over the years, well, it might look good, but original? Partly, but not totally.

What is your say about the UAAP Cheerdance Competition 2009? Are the winners justified or not?
