Varsity Cheerleaders place second
in Duke Raveen cheering competition
By Eugenia Williamson
Winston Salem State University's Varsity Cheerleaders competed in the CIAA Cheerleading Competition
sponsored by Duke and Raveen. It was held during the CIAA Tournament in Norfolk, Va., on February 25,
Before the competition began, the varsity squad needed to find out some very important information. This
information would Iw vital to their overall performance.
So what exactly was Duke and Raveen looking for in the competition? Could it be beauty and style or fad
and fashion? No, Duke and Raveen wanted a successful dance routine, a thunderous aowd chant, a booming
cheer of their own and a blasting cheer of Duke and Raveen.
Once the squad received this kind of information, it was tunc to praaice, practice, practice.
Andrea Bell, a sophomore who has been with the squad for one year said that once they got the plan, the
hard part was putting it together. "It was time consuming and frustrating Ixit overall, it was fun," said Bell.
On the day of competition, the squad was t>eing judged on appearance, poise, enthusiasm, the presentation
of the dance routine, and the presentation of the Duke and Raveen cheer.
Well, after all that hard work and dedication, the WSSU cheerleaders placed second in the competition.
Virginia State University Varsity Cheerleaders placed first in the competition.
CONGRATULATIONS Lady Rams and keep up the good work. The WSSU Ram family is proud of you.
