DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA – The Hawai‘i Pacific University Cheerleaders made Hawai‘i history again by capturing the national title at the National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) Collegiate Championships for the fifth year in a row.

The HPU Co-ed Cheer Team won its fifth straight national title. The HPU Small Co-ed Cheer Team (consisting of no more than four male students) won its third national title in a row after debuting in 2005 year at the NCA tournament. The HPU Dance teams also won a national title. In 2004, the HPU Dance Team placed first, making it the first time in history that a Hawai‘i dance team captured a national collegiate title at the NCA event. HPU’s Stunt Group placed second after winning the last two years.

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