EAC Cheer takes first!

Thatcher, AZ—Eastern Arizona College's Cheer Team competed in the Aloha International Spirit Championships in Phoenix earlier this month. The competition included All-Star and school-based teams from all over the southwest. EAC's cheer team entered the Open Stunt category which is geared toward college teams, where each team performed their one minute stunt routine twice.

EAC received the highest scores both times, beating two teams from Stanford University to win first place in the Open Stunt Division.

'I am very proud of my sophomore stunt team; they work together so well," says head cheer coach, Machael Layton. "They are some of the best cheerleaders I have ever had at EAC." EAC's cheer team will travel to California in March to compete at the USA Collegiate Cheerleading Championship.
