The Aggies competed in the All Girls College – Advanced division among four other college teams – Belmont Abbey College, Point Park University, St. John Fisher College and the University of Dubuque.

N.C. A&T, the Historically Black College and or University (HBCU) represented in the competition, showed up and showed up. As a result, the Aggies became grand national champions, accumulating the highest score (84.83 out of 100) of any team in each college division.

Not only did they get the highest score, they also hit zero! Zero indicates that the Aggies had a perfect performance and received no deductions from the competition judges. The performance lasted two minutes and 15 seconds and featured high-level acrobatics, flips and the great cheers and shakes that the Aggies are known for.

The Aggies are led by head coach Daniel Kearns-Pickett. He described his teams performance as a “Thank you Jesus moment”.

“All the hard work paid off,” Kearns-Pickett said. “Finally, we did it. I am proud. I cried many times every day that week. They were happy emotions, but I wanted them so badly. We finally went and did what we had been practicing all year. It was awesome.”

Senior cheer captain Nyla Jones (Waldorf, MD) has been a part of the program for four years and proudly finished her tenure at N.C. As a grand national champion at A&T.

“For me, it’s been four years since I’ve been in a competition like this,” Jones said. “At senior level, I was really nervous, but it felt good to have the support of my team, my coaches and the people who came to Myrtle Beach to watch me compete for two minutes and 15 seconds. The energy was definitely there. We all came together, we had a good spirit and mentality, and we went there to do what we had to do.”

The Aggies know that their strong bond and bond as a team had a lot to do with their ability to demonstrate perfection.

Second Iycess Hooper (Brandywine, MD) said N.C. It was about A&T and not about an individual. “It was a team thing for us,” Hooper said. It builds character. It’s all about having fun, being humble, building teamwork skills and having confidence. It won’t be easy, but it builds life skills. It’s not just for sports. Life skills will take you far in the future.’
