Make way for your NCAA cheerleaders and cheerdancers!

Pep squads from the ten National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) member schools gather anew to compete for top honors in the Chearleading Competition, slated on Wednesday, June 19, at the Filoil EcoOil Centre in San Juan City.

The country’s longest-running collegiate athletics league has had nothing short of an amazing and eventful Season 99 since it officially opened on September 24, 2023. On June 19, the cheerleading competition trophy will be up for grabs as the culmination of the major sporting events in the league’s collegiate ranks.  

All eyes will be on the Arellano University Chiefsquad, the competition’s reigning four-peat champions, as they gun for their fifth straight gold medal and sixth overall. The Lucky San Juan-coached squad has been on an absolute tear, resting at the mountaintop of NCAA cheerleading since a triumphant Season 92 in 2017.

Standing in their way are nine equally competitive squads determined to dethrone them and prevent a record-tying five-peat that last accomplished by AU Chiefsquad’s archnemesis, the Altas Perpsquad. 

Headed by Coach Ruffa Rosario, the winningest team in NCAA cheerleading whose undisputed title count stands at 10, will be attempting to break a four-year curse of being AU Chiefsquad’s first runner up.

Notably, the rival teams have both flexed total dominance and have been the event’s clear frontrunners for 11 years now. Only the AU Chiefsquad and the Altas Perpsquad have placed first or second for the past eight seasons.

Will it be a fifth consecutive trophy for the Arellano University Chiefsquad? Will fate favor the Altas Perpsquad’ return to glory? Or will new heroes step up and stun the favorites to start a new NCAA cheerleading dynasty?
