Cheer squads take national titles again


Times may change, but one thing stays consistent: The Morehead State Cheerleading program remains at the top of its sport. 

The MSU all-women and coed cheer squads claimed national championships this past January at the Universal Cheerleading Association College Nationals in Orlando, Florida. 

After winning three titles from 2014-16, the all-women team took second place last year. This season, the all-women squad claimed its 12th overall first-place trophy. The coed squad won its 26th national title since 1988 and its third straight. 

Morehead State Cheerleading has won an unmatched 43 national championship trophies since 1988. 

The squads also had two partner stunt teams compete, and Beaker, MSU’s Eagle mascot, competed for the first-ever time in the mascot competition, where he took fourth place.
