LOOK: UP Pep Squad Ditches 2016 UAAP Cheerdance Competition!

As soon as the order of performances for the 2016 UAAP Cheerdance Competition was released, many noticed that only seven schools will be participating in the much-awaited event.

Missing from the list is the UP Pep Squad who decided to pull out of the tournament after their "issues and questions" from the 2015 UAAP CDC (where they placed 3rd behind the teams from NU and UST) "remain unresolved." Read their official statement below.

While some fans of the annual competition expressed disappointment over the powerhouse team's absence this year, others supported their decision. Check out the reactions below:

The 2016 UAAP Cheerdance Competition will be held on November 19 at the Araneta Coliseum!
