NSU’s Prather Coliseum was filled with Demon spirit as the NSU Cheerleading Team presented their routine for the upcoming UCA College Cheerleading National Championship to be held at Disneyworld Friday, January 17. An audience of friends, alumni, family and Demon fans enjoyed a high energy show of cheer routines and high flying stunts. The Demon Cheer Squad has made over 5 trips to the championships over the years. They will be competing in the Gameday Division in which they are given game scenarios to which they have to give an appropriate cheer.
The showcase also had a serious purpose as the squad rallied around a team mate diagnosed with cancer. The team took donations at the door to help him with transportation expenses and other items not covered by insurance. The team has an account with the NSU Alumni Association. Anyone wishing to help may make a donation to the NSU Alumni Association’s “NSU Cheer” account specified for “Connar”
The Natchitoches Parish Journal extends its best wishes to the young man and women of The NSU Cheerleading team for a safe journey and a successful competition. Fork ’em Demons!
