19 spirited college teams brought their sideline traditions to the mat this weekend to compete for a national championship title at the 2019 NCA & NDA Collegiate National Championship.
The Game Day Divisions provide a unique and exciting opportunity for school Spirit Programs to work together to showcase their ability to promote school spirit and excitement in support of their school and its athletic teams.
Today we saw cheerleaders and dancers perform side by side along with other members of the school spirit program including members of the school's Marching Band, Pep Band, Drum Line, Mascots, and Majorettes.
Teams performed their school's traditional fight song, a band chant section, and a crowd leading section. Athletes were encouraged to use signs, flags, megaphones, and poms and were evaluated on their ability to lead the crowd, proper game day skill incorporations, execution of skills, motion technique, and the overall routine impression.
The first round of competition for the Game Day divisions is complete and the results are in!
In Game Day Division lA, Southern Methodist University is ranked first heading into Finals with a score of 97.53, an incredible 3 points ahead of the team in second place.
