The University of West Georgia has become synonymous with excellence in the world of cheerleading. The UWG all-female cheerleading squad successfully defended their Universal Cheerleaders Association National Championship at the 2013 competition on Saturday, Jan. 19, claiming their third-straight championship and sixth title since 2005.
This is the second win for head coach Nicole Wiltsie who joined the UWG staff last summer. Both the all-female squad and the coed cheerleading squad earned paid bids to this year's UCA National Championship in Orlando and were judged based on a number of categories including partner stunts, choreography and basket tosses.
The all-female squad competed for the first time in the Division I category that includes Morehead Sate and Slippery Rock.
