FSCC Cheerleaders named National Champions Again – April 13, 2010
Bay Minette, Alabama—Faulkner State Community College’s Cheerleading team once again took the Cheer, LTD National Championship Title for the Small Coed College Division in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on March 20, 2010. The squad won the National Championship last year as well.
In the competition, the cheers, chants, dance, tumbling, jumps, stunts and pyramids are combined into a 2 ½ minute routine choreographed to music. Squads are judged on showmanship, difficulty, execution and perfection of routine.
The one-day event had both small and large coed divisions, depending on the number of males on the squad. Faulkner State qualified under the small coed division (1-7 males); defeating 22 other teams from across the nation; including University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, Indiana University Southeast, Iowa Central Community College and University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
The Faulkner State Cheerleaders are: Amber Allen, Ocean Springs High School, Chad Breedwell from East Limestone High School; Demikus Brothern, Harrison County High School; Krystal Brown, North Jackson High School; Lyndsey Dickens, Alma Bryant High School; Ashley Gollott, Van Cleave High School; Paige Harvell, Clark County Preparatory; Asante Hooker and Tanell Hooker, Vigor High School; Kris Jones, LeFlore High School; Chelsea Lesinger, Spanish Fort High School; Bryant Lundy, Satsuma High School; Malori McGhee, Escambia Academy; Marrisa Moore, Baker High School; Lindsey Wells, Alma Bryant High School; Summer Wilder, Emmanuel Academy; Kevin Williams, Baker High School; and Mallory Wilson, Theodore High School.
“It is so rewarding to see all of the team’s hard work has paid off,” Coach CeLeste Robertson said. “We are especially grateful for the support our president and the entire Faulkner State faculty, staff, and students have given us. We have the best students, fans and athletes, so there is a lot to cheer about at Faulkner State.”
This is the third National Championship Faulkner State Community College Cheerleaders have won in competition.
