Kentucky Cheer looks for its 25th title in 2021

The winningest program in college cheerleading is on the hunt for its 25th title in the year 2021, and it’s business as normal for Kentucky Cheer.

Despite the cancellation of other in-person cheerleading championships, such as NCA (think: Netflix’s Cheer), the ‘Cats are headed to Orlando in April to compete.

The competition, originally scheduled for January of 2021, was pushed to April. According to head coach Ryan O’Connor, the Cats have the option of competing virtually or in-person, and are planning on the latter.

The competition, which is annually held at Walt Disney World, is taking extra health and safety precautions, including social distancing, masks worn by all participants unless actively competing on the floor, and increased sanitation measures.

Kentucky Cheer has had a decreased presence at athletic events this season, which has been sorely missed by the squad and fans alike.

Despite a strange year without fans rising to their feet at the end of the second half to the iconic flag-pyramid, one things is for certain: nothing can stop Kentucky Cheer.

    Great news! I was concerned about how the Cheer team would rebound following the “firing” of their coach and the departure of Dean Williamson from the program. Great for them!
