Reach the Beach Nationals 2018

This year, the UMW club cheerleading team competed for the forth time in the national Reach the Beach competition in Ocean City, Maryland. This year, we made UMW cheerleading history. We placed first in our division, and second in the overall collegiate level. We have never placed first before, and have never made it into the top three teams of the overall collegiate level. It was an amazing experience, and it was a great feeling to have our hard work pay off!

This year, we had so much talent on our team, and every single member is so amazing. I love the group of people on this team, and how close all of us have become. This year, we truly became more of a family. I can not wait to see what next season has to offer, and to finish out my cheerleading career my senior year!

Here is a video of our first day competing at Reach the Beach!
