The last day of the President's Cup consisted of the cheering competition and awarding of trophies and medals to the winning teams for the sports events of basketball, volleyball, table tennis, and badminton. This event took place at the Sr. Assumpta Filser Gymnasium last December 4, 2008 from 3:00 to 5:00pm.

The last but not the least to perform was the Blue Team (Institutional).
