VICTORIOUS is how Colegio de San Juan de Letran ended NCAA Season 98 after an impressive showing that bagged them a second runner-up finish in this year's Cheerleading Competition held at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex earlier today.

The Letran Cheering Squad utilized a flurry of tosses, lifts, and floor maneuvers to wow the audience backed by a rendition of famous Filipino boyband SB19's famous songs.

LCS surely lived up to the words of Coach Arnold Villanueva prior to the competition, assuring his squad's all-out performance in the contest.

"Ang maipapangako lang po namin, gagawin po namin lahat ng magagawa namin para maging deserving ng support na ipinapakita ng Letran community."

The long-tenured coach had to be pleased, as his squad left it all out on the floor which garnered them roars and cheers from Letranites inside the venue.

Letran's 215.50 points were bested only by University of Perpetual Help System DALTA who got 227.50, and the four-time defending champions Arellano University who finished with 245.50.

After a successful season with championships in men's and junior's basketball and women's beach volleyball, medals in swimming, and now a bronze finish in the cheerleading competition, the Colegio now looks forward to what next year has in store following the conclusion of the NCAA Season 98 Tournament.
