2017 was definitely a banner year for the Adamson University Pep Squad, who made history by capturing their first UAAP Cheerdance Competition championship.
2017 was another great year to be a sports fan. But it’s even better for fans of the athletes and teams who were able to bag medals or championships. With 2018 just around the corner, let’s look back in the past year’s sweetest sports triumphs.
The DLSU Lady Spikers Go Back-to-Back
Earlier this year during UAAP Season 79, the Lady Spikers went toe-to-toe with fierce rivals the Ateneo Lady Eagles for the sixth straight year and emerged victorious for the second consecutive season. Let’s see if they can go for a three-peat come the Season 80 Women’s Volleyball Tournament.

We all know what happened in the 2016 NBA Finals. The Warriors blew a 3-1 lead against the Cleveland Cavaliers and opened a floodgate of jokes and memes. In this year’s NBA Finals, Golden State put an end to “3-1” by defeating the Cavs for the second time in three years.
The Adamson Pep Squad Makes History in the UAAP CDC
Prior to Season 80, only half of the UAAP schools have won the Cheerdance Competition: UP, UST, NU, and FEU. After Adamson’s 80s-inspired winning routine, the San Marcelino-based university now belongs to that list, as it bagged its first-ever CDC title.
Ateneo Ends Its Five-Year Title Drought
After achieving an unprecedented five-peat from 2008 to 2012, the Ateneo Blue Eagles would go on for the next five years without winning gold. Ateneo was able to end the drought this year, as they overcame the DLSU Green Archers in an edge-of-your-seat Game 3 thriller.
If you’re a supporter of these athletes, their sweet triumphs are made even sweeter by celebrating it with fellow fans and San Miguel Flavored Beer in hand. It comes in Lemon and Apple flavors and has just the right amount of sweetness, making San Miguel Flavored Beer the perfect barkada drink to accompany a seriously fun night of watching games together. Don’t go overboard with the celebration, though; remember to drink in moderation—always.
May 2018 be an even more amazing year for sports and an even kinder one to your favorite athletes!
