The University’s all-female cheering squad Firestarters triumphed at the Women’s National College Athletic Association (WNCAA) Cheerleading Championship last Sunday when they performed a flawless, entertaining routine that defied gravity and stunned the crowd at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The group, headed by team captain Crystal Avanceña, broke into tears when the announcement was made at the end of the competition. The victory marks the first in the University’s young history, having topped contenders from Centro Escolar University and Miriam College that landed at second and third places respectively while defeating five other schools.

Showing off their dancing and near-acrobatic skills to represent the school were Avanceña, Ana Feline Avena, Rachelle Ann Baliao, Ashley Hope Barba, Eunice Bilog, Patricia Calma, Patriz Anne Cruz, Rochelle Anne De Mesa, Ma. Aurora Jzmyn Esguerra, Ina Gonda, Micah Gorostiza, Rosselina Angeline Ibuna, Teresa Beatriz Jose, Anna Maria Lucia Limbo, Bianca Mascenon, Ira Loyola, Iris Maligat, Isabella Manrique, Maria Dalisay Palabyab, Charybelle Quimbao, Erika Recomite, Princess Samson, Jamie Alyssa Tecson, Francine Turo, Juhanna Villaruz and Kathlyn Louise Yu.

A Thanksgiving Mass would be offered at the Stella Orientis Oratory as gratitude for the victory.

The Firestarters’ will compete again on Sunday, March 4, at 11:00am at the Rizal Stadium for the WCSA Cheerdancing Competition. #
