For the third time in a row, UP Pep Squad emerged as UAAP Cheerdance Competition champions! They bested 7 other university teams, making this their 8th championship. Last year's 3rd place winners, FEU Cheering Squad bags 2nd place with their fierce animalistic routine. The Disney-inspired showcase of NU Cheer Squadron finally paid off as they earn their first UAAP Cheerdance title placing third.
UP also got the top spot in the stunts competition also with FEU and NU. For a clean sweep, UAAP Cheerdance Stunner was awarded to Nicolette Erika Ambulo also from UP.
Known for their shocking gimmicks, the UP Pep Squad showed up with shaved heads, different from 2011's Madonna themed blonde locks. Their impeccable technique and simple yet breathtaking routine proved that they are in it to win it even with a major fall during their last formation.
UP Pep Squad won 340,000 pesos cash prize and a trophy. FEU got 200,000 pesos and NU 140,000 pesos.
UAAP Cheerdance 2012 ranking are as follows: UP, FEU, NU, UST, DLSU, ADMU, UE, ADU
