The Truman Cheerleaders and Showgirls brought home seven trophies and two plaques from the recently completed University Cheer and Dance Association camps held at Missouri State University in Springfield. The Cheerleaders swept the small co-ed division of the camp bringing home first place trophies in cheer, sideline, fight song and game day performances. They were voted Most Collegiate by the UCA staff for exemplifying what a college spirit squad should be.
The Showgirls received a second place trophy for the Home Routine evaluation and a Superior Trophy given to teams with the highest ribbon accumulation scores. The Showgirls also received a trophy for their fight song performance and were voted Most Improved Program by the UDA staff for the improvement over the past year.
Both squads are vital roles of the Truman game day experience and will be back in action when the Bulldog football team opens up the home season on September 8 at Stokes Stadium. The teams are under the direction of Coach Brandi Wriedt.
