From its debate team to wheelchair basketball, Alabama’s claim on national titles extends well beyond the gridiron.
And, this weekend bore that out once again, as the University of Alabama All-Girls squad claimed the UCA Division 1 national title:
Alabama cheerleading took home its second Division 1A all-girl national championship in program history Sunday evening at the 2020 UCA & UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championship, winning the competition while also placing second in the co-ed category.
The championship marks the program’s second Division 1A all-girl national title, previously winning in 2015. Since that first national title, the Crimson Tide has placed in the top-three in five of the last six years.
Not only did the ‘Bama girls claim the crown for major division teams, but its co-ed teams placed second, it’s second runner-up finish the past four seasons.
Congratulations to ‘Bama’s cheerleaders. It is a surprisingly brutal athletic endeavor that has morphed into a competitive sport in its own right.
