Coach White begins her third year coaching at Aquinas and her 14th year of cheerleading overall. She cheered on the Sideline-Competitive Varsity team at Suttons Bay High School for seven seasons, in four years, competing through the MCCA. She then went on to cheer on the Grand Valley all-girl team for four years and also cheered on Lake Effect All Star cheer team based out of Allendale, Michigan for one year. At the 2009 NCA National Collegiate Championships, she and her stunt group took 3rd Place in the Collegiate Group Stunt Competition and she become a National Champion as a member of the Lake Effect All-Star team in 2010. She graduated from Grand Valley State University with a bachelor’s degree in clinical exercise science. Coach White has many new goals and objectives for the program, including continuing the tradition of cheering sideline and increasing school spirit, while the main focus for the season will be competition.

 

Season Outlook

The Aquinas College Cheer Team cheers at all home basketball games and also competes throughout the winter season, with their last competition being the NCA Collegiate National Championship in Daytona Beach, FL in April. They perform at various all star competitions, January though March, to prepare for Nationals. NCA Nationals is the largest Cheer Championship in the world, last year over 200 teams competed in 15 divisions. As the season comes to an end, Aquinas will put all their hard work and commitment to the test with this opportunity to compete for their own national title.
Bring it Home Saints!
