UK Cheerleading wins record 19th UCA National Championship

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks


On Sunday, Kentucky cheerleading returned the Universal Cheerleader Association Championship to where it has spent most of the last 28 years.

For a record 19th time, the Wildcats won the UCA national title at the ESPN Wide World of Sports. UK finished ahead of second-place Alabama, who ended a streak of three consecutive Kentucky titles in 2011.

"Kentucky has climbed the mountain once again and we stand alone," UK coach Jomo Thompson tweeted. "Championship #19 is coming home!"

The championship is UK's fourth in five years and seventh in nine. UK has failed to win the national championship just three times since 1995 and has reclaimed the title in the following year each time.

UK's title-winning routine can be seen above and full results of the competition can be seen here.

The Kentucky dance team also participated in the final round of national competition this weekend. Coach Dawn Duncan Walters and the Wildcats brought home a sixth-place finish in the Pom category and eighth place in Hip Hop.

Congratulations to both the cheerleading and dance teams!
