Cullowhee, N.C. - The Western Carolina Catamount Cheerleaders attended the 2007 National Cheerleading Association (NCA) College Cheerleading Camp in Myrtle Beach, S.C., competing in the small co-ed division, the Catamounts won the "game day sideline" competition and took home second-place in the "rally routine."
In addition to winning the small coed game day sideline competition, WCU earned the opportunity to compete against the other divisions, finishing third out of the entire camp behind Kennesaw State and the Univ. of South Carolina.
"Our team had another successful camp that will give us some momentum going into football season," said head coach and WCU alumnus Kim Cherry. "The team came to campus twice this summer to practice and have hit the ground running as the fall semester begins by making appearances, fundraising and working with local youth cheerleading leagues."
Cherry added, "Our veterans know what it takes and our newcomers are buying into the system. We can't wait for our first football game in the `whee!"
Western's cheerleaders, who will perform at each football game as well as home men's and women's basketball games this year, were among several hundred campers from colleges and universities across the country. The College of Charleston and Elon were two additional Southern Conference schools represented at the camp.
