BRIEF: Cheer wins nationals

The Brahma cheer team stampeded through the competition and became the college all-girl national champions.

Pierce competed at the Spirit Cheer SoCal Finale Nationals in San Diego. After the judges scored the Brahmas routine with zero deductions, they were awarded first place.

Zach Harris, the cheer coach and spirit club adviser, acknowledged how proud he was of his team because of how diligent they were throughout the season to ultimately hoist the championship trophy.

“Our cheerleaders work so hard to balance their school, work and practice schedules,” Harris said. “Their hard work and dedication came through when they performed an amazing routine and captivated the crowd.”

According to Harris, the team focuses on confidence and strength, which he said are traits that represent the Brahma spirit.

“During warm-ups, they cheered on other teams and truly showcased their positivity,” Harris said. “They were encouraging to everyone and great examples of Pierce diplomacy.”

Harris said their performance was the cherry on top of an obstacle-filled season.

“The crowd was amazed by their solid technique and energy,” he said.
