Cheerleading is returning to Motlow State Community College. Cheer squad tryouts will be held on Friday, Oct. 14, on the Moore County campus inside Nisbett Center beginning at 1 p.m.
“We are excited to bring cheerleading back to Motlow State because our athletes and our athletic programs as a whole need our support,” said Bertha Smith, cheerleading sponsor at Motlow State. “We are fortunate to have some of the most talented athletes in the world right here in our community, and they deserve to know the work they are putting into their sport matters to us.”
Smith is a Motlow alumnus who was a cheerleader at the College, Tullahoma High School and West Middle School.
According to Smith, very few community colleges offer cheerleading programs. “Some had doubts as to whether my reintroducing the Motlow cheerleading program would be successful, however, I know with the students we have here we will be successful,” she added. “I am realistic to know there will be challenges, but nothing is impossible. It’s a new day at Motlow and I am grateful to have the opportunity to be a small part in making a brighter future for our athletic program, and for our entire college.”
There will be 10 to 16 cheerleading positions, with basketball being the initial sport supported. For more information contact Bertha Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or 931-393-1793.
