Cheer teams both No. 1 in nationals video bids

by Kalamalama staff

HPU cheerleading teams placed first in their division for the National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) qualifying skills tape, making both teams top contenders in the upcoming national championship.

The 2003 National Champion HPU Co-ed Cheerleading Team, and the All-Girls Cheerleading Team will be competing among hundreds of the world’s best college cheerleaders vying for a national title April 2 and 3 in Daytona Beach, Florida. Teams become eligible for this competition based on qualification at a NCA Summer Camp, a regional competition, or through video.

 

HPU’s co-ed cheerleading team has received first place in the video bid for three years straight. The team, which scored 9.95 out of a possible 10 in the qualifying video bid, is comprised of male and female athletes highly skilled in gymnastics and partner stunting. The All-Girl Cheerleading Team scored 9.28 out of a possible 10. The squad, which has 24 members, is the only All-Girl college cheer team in Hawai‘i.

The Cheer Collegiate Championship is the largest event sponsored by the NCA. With teams from across the United States, Mexico, Japan, and Canada, it is the most widely viewed college cheer event in the history of collegiate spirit competitions.
