Football Cheerleaders Win Honors

The Hope College cheerleaders attended the largest regional college
cheerleading camp in the country sponsored by Universal Cheerleading
Association (UCA).

Hundreds of cheerleaders from colleges and universities all over the Midwest met at Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois for four days in August.

In addition to learning new skills and coming together as a squad at the
beginning of the season, the Hope squad competed in three competitions while at camp in the Small Coed Division.

Even with half of the twelve members of Hope's squad being new to college
cheerleading, Hope earned a first place trophy in the Cheer competition and
second place trophies in the Sideline and Fight Song competitions, according to coach Wes Wooley.
