I believe the dance team won a national championship several years ago as well. Who did we beat for this NC?
There are many divisions in college cheer: all-girl, co-ed, Small co-ed, intermediate 1A, etc.
It's exciting they won! I was fortunate enough to be the sports administrator for the cheer team at my previous institution and watch the MANY MANY MANY long practice days they go through to prep for competition. From October - April, it was Monday - Friday, 5:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. practice, with commitments to night time games (basketball, volleyball, football, etc.), community appearances, etc. I went with them to the competition and it was quite a sight to see. The amazing stunts, flips, lifts, turns, etc. WOW! The student-athletes performing at those competitions are TRUE ATHLETES. I don't know how these student-athletes balance everything; it's truly remarkable!
