Savannah State University 1st HBCU To Ever Win CheerSport Nationals
Congratulations are in order for the amazing Savannah State University’s cheerleading team who just made history by becoming the VERY FIRST HBCU to ever win CheerSport Nationals! What even better is they won during Black History Month. Talk about making history. Needless to say as a 1999 graduate from Savannah State and recently having my father serve as the 2016 Grand Marshal I am simply over the moon. This is huge for HBCU’s and Savannah!
CHEERSPORT was founded in 1997 by all-star coaches who showcased their love for competitive cheerleading/dance has since become the nation’s largest cheerleading competition held here in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center.
Savannah State cheerleaders first participated in the competition in 2013 and became the champions in 2017. Way to bring it home Tigers!
