UTA Spirit Groups go to National Competition

The UTA Cheer and Dance teams are leaving next Monday for the National Cheerleaders Association College Nationals Competition. The competition is in Daytona, Florida and both UTA teams will drive there. The teams have been preparing all year for this aside from also cheering at every event for UTA. Coach Will Strother explains the competition is among hundreds of teams nationwide. Cheer Captain Alyssa Rodriguez knows the pressure of winning another title for UTA Cheer. The team won in 2010 and hopes to bring it back again. UTA Dance will be competing in a new division this year and will do a jazz routine as well as a hip-hop routine. The teams compete next Thursday and Friday. We wish them luck and hope they bring home another title.
