September 15, 2016
MARTIN, Tenn. – This summer, the University of Tennessee at Martin cheerleading squad earned third place accolades at a National Cheerleaders Association College Camp that was held in Hattiesburg, Miss.
The Skyhawks ranked amongst the best in the field in cheers, chants, stunts, basket tosses and pyramids. At the conclusion of the camp, each participating team took on a Game Day routine in which UT Martin brought home the program’s first-ever bronze paid bid to the NCA College Nationals, which will take place in Daytona Beach, Fla. on April 5-9, 2017.
UT Martin’s cheerleaders also received a Superior ranking – the highest award given – in their performance of a Rally routine, which consisted of tumbling, stunts, motions and pyramids.
This 2016-17 Skyhawk roster consists of 25 student-athletes, 15 of which are returners from last season’s squad. UT Martin is under the direction of second-year co-head coaches James Woody and Jessi Woody.
