HS Pep Squad Bags Championship at Batang Pinoy
St. Scholastica’s College Manila High School (SSC HS) Pep Squad was declared champion of the Batang Pinoy Cheerleading Competition held at the Cebu Sports Center last November 28. Batang Pinoy, also known as the Philippine Youth Games, is a competition run by the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) to enable young athletes across the country to exhibit their talents.
The team, along with the other delegates, performed in a pre-judging stage as soon as they arrived at the venue. The squad showcased their talents and received medals for different categories such as the all girls division (Gold), co-ed division, group stunts, and cheer dance.
“Through hard work, anything can be achieved,” says Margarette Mah, the co-captain of the SSC HS Pep Squad. Overall, the Batang Pinoy gave the team more confidence, served as an exposure and marked the foundation of upcoming championships in the future.
After the competition, the HS Pep Squad had a tour of Cebu City.
