"To prepare for this level of competition we needed hard work and dedication from our athletes, and they really came through. It took long hours of preparation, late nights of practice, and the support of our family, friends, and sponsors to be able to reach our goal of competing at UCA."
— Head Cheerleading Coach Mariah Villegas
