College Magazine published CM’s Top 10 Schools for Cheerleading, putting Kentucky in the top spot.
The Wildcats are a lot more than a bunch of kids singing and dancing through the halls. The ‘Cats won this year’s national Universal Cheerleading Association competition, making it their 20th title. It’s a nice addition to their string of consecutive wins between 1995 and 2002. The co-ed team led by Coach Jomo Thompson continues to mirror the wild (ha, get it?) success of their football and basketball teams. Okay, fine, maybe it is something to sing about.
KyForward published UK Cheerleading, Dance Teams Wrap Up National Competition, Both Finishing Third.
Kentucky finished third at the UCA/UDA National Championships in Orlando, Florida, behind Alabama and second-place UCF. Thompson cited execution as the reason why the Cats couldn’t bring home their 16th championship since 1995 and second in a row, but a difficult routine still kept UK in the top three.
Kentucky.com posted UK Cheerleaders Go For 21st Title, just before the team competed at the 2015 championship.
RuppTV created a feature video on Kentucky cheerleaders.
