Kentucky Cheer and Dance soar at Nationals

This past week, Kentucky Cheer and Dance competed for their respective national titles in Orlando, FL.

Kentucky Cheer’s Blue Squad, the all-time most winning program in the Division 1 category, fell short of taking home their 25th national championship this year.

The Blue Squad took third place in this year’s competition, behind University of South Florida in first place and University of Central Florida in second.

The Blue Squad traditionally covers men’s basketball and football.

The White Squad, on the other hand, took home first in their division this year, competing virtually in their division.

The White Squad typically cheers women’s basketball and volleyball, among other sports.

Kentucky Dance had a historic year, finishing a program record-high second place in both Hip-Hop and Game Day dance divisions.

Another Kentucky cheerleading program had a historic finish as well, with Eastern Kentucky University’s Co-Ed and All-Girl squads both winning national titles this year, a never before done feat for the school.

And as if that wasn’t enough, the Western Kentucky University All-Girl squad took first in their division as well as Morehead State taking second in theirs.

In other words, Kentucky dominated at this year’s nationals. Kentucky can officially be considered a cheerleading state now, right?

    Send Cal’s cheerleaders from the fan base down to Orlando. They’d bring home the title every year.

    3rd place? Time to fire the coaches. The game has obviously passed them by.
