The WCU cheerleading squad placed sixth in the National Cheerleading Association (NCA) Competition Thursday and Friday, April 5-6 in Daytona, Florida.
In last year’s competition, the team finished 14th. This year, the team made an impressive jump to 6th in their national division. The team also finished .02 points from third in the competition.
The routine is a 2 1/2 minute performance that begins with a cheer and includes stunts and pyramids.
“The team was very proud of the improvement that was made from last year,” said Head Coach Charity Moon. “We learned so much from other squads (including N.C. State, who won the competition) and are all excited about next season.”
