Crusaders Take 1st Place at Dixie Regionals

Sweet TrophyCongratulations to the Brother Martin Cheerleaders for an outstanding performance at the Dixie Regional Championship held in Jackson, MS on Saturday. The Crusaders took 1st Place in the Large Co-Ed division at this competition sponsored by UCA and also earned a bid to the UCA National Competition in Orlando in February.

In addition, Coach Jessica Spitale received two prestigious awards: the Best Stunt Sequence Award and the Innovative Choreography Award. These awards are not given for every division and reflect highly on the Brother Martin Cheerleading Program, as well as Coach Spitale’s dedication and expertise.

Being a Brother Martin Cheerleader does not end with Graduation, as several of our alums have given of their time in working with the current team at various practices over the months. Wesley Smith ’12 came to Jackson to help the team and support them every step of the way. Another alum, Michael Vinsanau ’11, works as a UCA Staff member and was on hand to cheer for his Crusaders.
