The Misericordia University cheerleading team finished fourth at the Universal Cheerleading Association National Championships, Saturday in at the HP Field house at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL.


The Cougars of coaches Tara Sinclair and Courtney Coletti entered the final round in fifth place, but moved ahead of Riverside (CA) City College to place fourth and record their second consecutive top-five finish.

Misericordia advanced to the finals thanks in part to a perfect crowd score in the semifinal round.

??I am incredibly proud of this young team,? said Sinclair, whose squad featured 10 team members who were making their first appearance at nationals. ??Our upperclassmen, especially seniors Alyssa McEntee and Amber Schmidt, did an amazing job guiding our first-year members.?

??I'm really proud of our team,? said Schmidt, a team captain. ??Each year, the team improves its competitive ability and this year was no different. Our team put a really solid and difficult routine together this year. The growth I have experienced and witnessed during my time at MU is indescribable. We proved that with dedication, hard-work and determination goals are achievable.?
