In short, there was never open or clear communication between Ms. Adams and Cheer-Phi. By the time of the 1995 CIAA tour nament, communication was almost nonexistent. Cheer-Phi had a specific schedule of events and activi ties they had to perform in or der to strongly represent the university. This schedule was disrupted when Ms. Adams went against tradition and de cided to bring the JV cheerleading squad to the tour nament (JV don’t attend CIAA). Not only did this ac tion confuse and disrupt Cheer-Phi’s accomodations, it was also a slap in the face of tradition. One of the promises that Ms. Adams made to the squad was that the presence of the JV cheerleaders would not interfere with the Varsity Cheerleaders’ agenda. Unfor tunately, this is just what hap pened. The JV squad’s presence drew Ms. Adams’ attention away from the activities of the Varsity cheerleaders. The re sulting confusion led to the varsity cheerleading squad missing an important athletic banquet due to a hastily sched uled breakfast session with the then Interim Chancellor, Dr. Donna Benson. Attending the breakfast forced them to miss a manda tory cheerleaders’ award ban quet. With their agenda lying in tatters, Cheer-Phi protested against their advisor’s incon siderate scheduling by not per forming at a CIAA-sponsored exhibition at the tournament. In response to this refusal to cheer, a blanket suspension was imposed on the members of the Varsity cheerleading see "Cheer, “ pg. 13
