#DalagangPilipina movement makes its way to the UAAP

These UAAP athletes wanted everyone to know that they're certified Dalagang Pilipina (Yeah).
There's no escaping the #DalagangPilipina fever.
We've all heard the song that inspired it. We've all seen clips of people posing to it. It was only a matter of time before the ladies of UAAP Season 81 volleyball joined in.
The #DalagangPilipina movement, started by online star Mimi, tasks participants to break out their most ironic "pa-cute" pose with the viral hit song "Dalaga" by Allmo$t playing in the background.
Celebrities have done it, and not to be outdone, UAAP stars have joined in, doing it after and even during the games.
Ateneo libero Dani Ravena is probably the earliest to be captured on video doing it in a post-game presser.
DLSU super rookie Jolina Dela Cruz and middle hitter Julia Ipac did it as well, while on the court as the Lady Spikers celebrated a win.
Former Lady Spikers Justine Tiu and Kim Kianna Dy made the most of their airtime as well, as Kim Fajardo perfectly pointed out.
Meanwhile, Ateneo women's basketball team member Joie Aquisap stole the show for a brief moment during the Ateneo-UP clash last Saturday with her own rendition.
Perhaps the most brazen and viral entry on this list was done by Mapua University Cheerping Cardinals who deserve a special mention for their hilarious and far-reaching take (shown on MOA Arena's jumbotron, no less) during the NCAA Cheerleading Competition last March 28.
