They numbered in the top five in the Cheer category for small squads which earned them an invitation to audition for the National UCA College Cheerleading Competition to be held in Mission Bay Califor- nia. NBC will air the January Competitions on prime time television. Miner said the finishes were especially good because, "We were competing against larger four year schools with seasoned squads. We also had several injuries during the course of the week's competitions, but in the face of all these difficulties, we came through. I am very proud of the endurance, the great attitude, and the talent displayed by this year's squad," said a happy Miner. Most of the other squads in attendance, at the competitions were able to practice and work the bugs out of their routines during football games this summer.
