Kentucky Cheerleading Finishes Eighth in UCA National Competition
LEXINGTON, Ky. – The University of Kentucky cheerleaders finished eighth in Division 1A at the Universal Cheerleaders Association coed finals competition Sunday night in Orlando, Fla.
Kentucky, which has won 24 national championships in program history, was second entering Sunday’s finals.
“While I am obviously disappointed with the results, I know how hard this squad has worked to get to this point,” said UK head coach Ryan Martin O’Connor. “This is my favorite team that I have ever coached. They are young. You learn from every weekend at nationals and I have learned so much about these people and I am so proud of them. We will take what we learned this year and use that to reload and refocus for next year.”
On Friday, Kentucky finished fifth in the UCA game day competition.
