The Antonian College Preparatory High School Cheerleading team competed in the small advanced coed division at the National Cheerleading Association (NCA) competition this past weekend in Dallas, Texas and were named the NCA National Champions.
The National Cheerleading Association members called the Antonian Apache’s performance “chilling”, “unforgettable”, “disciplined”, “physically and mentally,” strong. This was a “comeback” year for Antonian and they now boast four national titles (2007, 2008, 2012, and 2018) with this being their first coed win.
The Antonian coed team featured one freshman male, Felipe Serna. He performed a variety of advanced skills and his skills were showcased in a one of a kind basket toss and numerous tumbling sequences. The Dallas Convention Center Arena celebrated as they saw Felipe Serna being showcased in a one of a kind basket toss which is typically unheard of to have a male cheerleader being lifted.
The Antonian Apaches final score was 96.78, the highest out of all the divisions, this lead them to be in the running for the Grand Champion title. The Apaches worked countless hours to obtain this much deserve win and we congratulate our NCA National Champions.
