Western Kentucky University
Western Kentucky University, also known as WKU has the colors of red and white. Their mascot is the Hilltoppers. They are division IA and contain both a co-ed and allgirl. This past year, their all-girl team placed third place at the UCA College Nationals. They placed behind Indiana University and the University of Alabama. The Co-ed team also did very well by placing eighth out of the 23 schools they competed against for the UCA College Nationals. Because of this, each team did reciebe a $5,000 prize that will go towards their fund to return and place better next year. Kentucky is what is now referred to as the "cheer state." This is because Morehead State, University of Louisville, Western Kentucky University, and, of course, the University of Kentucky all slayed this year at each competition they competed in. Every cheerleader in the cheer world dreams of attending one of these schools in Kentucky because of the exceptional job they do each year. Western Kentucky University is a huge part of the cheer programs in Kentucky. There are big things to be expected out of this school in the future.
