TSU Becomes First HBCU To Win a National Title at College National Cheerleading Championship

Cheerleaders from Texas Southern University made history this past weekend when they became the first team from an HBCU to win the College National Championship of the National Cheerleaders Association (NCA).

The Tigers, who were competing in Division I of the Cheer Spirit Rally, started the preliminary round with a performance score of 94.05, a raw score of 94.3, and a performance score of 23.5125.

According to the university, TSU maintained its consistency in the final round and earned scores of 96.1 for performance, 96.1 for raw performance, and 95.5875 for event performance.

“When I first came to TSU, I told the team we’re going to Nationals,” said head coach Shontrese Comeaux. “When we earned our gold bid at NCA Camp, I told the team, ‘It’s time to go to work’. I knew this was the year and the team to get the job done. I’m so proud of them and where we’re going to take the cheer program next.”

“Words can’t express how proud I am for our cheer team’s national championship,” said Vice President of Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Kevin Granger. “They’ve worked very hard for this moment over the past several months. To see the long hours they’ve dedicated come to fruition in the form of a national championship is amazing as I want to commend the coaching staff and team members for their efforts. This team has made history at Texas Southern and everyone apart of TSU nation is proud of their accomplishments.”

Congratulations to the Cheerleaders at TSU!
