Cheerleaders take national title

Memorial’s cheerleaders captured their second straight national title.

The Memorial University Cheerleading squad claimed the top spot in Canada for the second year in a row at the 2006 PCA University and Open National Cheerleading Championships Dec. 2.

At the Powerade Centre in Brampton, Ontario, the women competed in the All-Girl Collegiate division finishing in first place with 657.5 points ahead of McGill, Brock and the University of Alberta.

This is the second year in a row that the team has claimed the top prize – quite an impressive feat, said Coach Angela Burke.

“Memorial really does have quite a strong cheerleading team. Who would have thought the team from farthest east would win two years in a row? It’s definitely a great feeling.”
