Tech Cheerleaders Going To National Competition

Tennessee Tech University’s all-girl and co-ed cheerleading squads will attend the Universal Cheerleading Association Collegiate National Championships on Jan. 16 and 17. Organizers say this meet is the largest and most respected collegiate national cheerleading competition in the world. Held in Orlando, Florida, at Walt Disney World, it will be televised on ESPN in February. Teams are placed in divisions by their football team division so TTU is Division 1 co-ed and Division 1 all-girl. Both squads will compete against teams including Morehead University, Western Kentucky University and Texas State University. Officials say these are the first cheerleading squads in TTU history to qualify for and attend this event.
