Dahil tribal tribal ang UE, huwag nating kalimutan ang laban ng mga indigenous people na patuloy inaapi sa kani kanilang ancestral grounds.#UAAPCDC2018— Julember (@rombutans) November 17, 2018

That was Ateneo’s best cheerdance performance in years. A feat in itself. Appreciate the effort. #UAAPCDC2018— The Professional Heckler (@hecklerforever8) November 17, 2018
FEU Cheering Squad
That Play That Funky Music bit by the FEU Cheering Squad is the best dance sequence so far!!! That was so fun! Their energy just has a tendency to dip after a wobble. But nakabawi sa gitna. Definitely owned the dance part of cheerdance. #UAAPCDC2018.— Benggadora (@Benggadora08) November 17, 2018
Adamson Pep Squad
May laban ang Adamson! They gave it all (despite kinda lacking energy – probably with the music) but the stunts are superbly awesome! Well done with great finesse! #AdamsonFalcons #UAAPCDC2018 pic.twitter.com/BAIJR9aLij— v i l l a i n (@alksdnvrs) November 17, 2018
