Catamount Cheerleading Outlook

The WCU Cheerleaders had their try-outs in April for the 2002-2003 squad. We selected 13 ladies and 7 men for the upcoming squad. Of those 20, 12 are rookies. These guys cheer for football and men's and women's basketball, along with participating in community outreach and preparing for Nationals. Western cheerleaders are now being noticed across the country and have had fans compare us, putting us on top, to ACC and SEC teams. The squad looks great. We have already met for two weekend camps and have hosted 4 camps this summer for other schools. We are ready to begin a new year, excited to cheer for WCU, excited to help anywhere we can in the community, and hopefully can raise enough money to attend Nationals again this year. Our track record says that this years' Nationals look promising. In 2000 we placed 14th in our division, in 2001 we placed 6th and in 2002 we placed 3rd! Keep an eye on us, you may be watching the next National Champions in our division!
