The Southwest cheerleading squad once again brought home a first place trophy at the Cheerleaders of America Lone Star Nationals, winning the All-Female Cheer Non-Tumble Division. The competition was held on Saturday at the Nokia Theatre in Dallas.

Under the direction of fourth-year Coach Sabrina Tiller, Southwest also placed second in the Collegiate Stunt Group Division. “This team is definitely one to remember! We have a very talented group of ladies,” said Tiller. “I look forward to hearing about them doing great things in the future!”

Southwest cheerleaders were the top four in the Individual Cheer Division – Latrina Ward (first place), Tanesha Jackson (second place), Britany Bolton (third place), and Nicole Bibbs (fourth place). In addition, Southwest placed three cheerleaders in the Dance Soloist Division – Valli Bursi (third place), Breeze Wright (fourth place), and Jasmine Austin (fifth place). The Stunt Group included Ward, Jackson, Bibbs, Wright, and Shundra King.
