LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) — A city in eastern Kentucky is now home to three more national cheerleading titles.
The Morehead State University cheerleaders took home three titles over the weekend.
The school’s big coed team won their 29th title, the all-girl team their 13th title, and the new small coed team won their first title in their first-ever national competition.
The titles are championship numbers 51, 52 and 53.
“It’s the greatest feeling in the world. We did 3 routines on Sunday,” said head coach Mark Coleman.
Coleman says he’s basking in the glory, but that wouldn’t be possible without the program’s longstanding legacy.
“We have a tradition that goes back decades. We work with the greatest athletes and the greatest assistant coaches, and we have this opportunity. So many programs don’t have these resources, don’t have these traditions, don’t have the access to athletes that I have,” said Coleman.
Athletes from across the country come to Morehead State to cheer on America’s most successful cheerleading tradition.
Amanda Murin is from Pennsylvania.
“I messaged Mark on Instagram and said I’m interested in your amazing program and he said ok you can come to a clinic and we’ll see how you are and I went to the trial sessions and did it,” said Murin.
She competed with the all-girl team.
They took home their first national title since 2018. She says they spend the entire season training for the Nationals in Orlando, Fla., including a month of training twice a day.
“It was hard, I’m not going to lie. It was a challenge but that’s why I love it so much because it’s very hard to get through the hard times and the pain that comes with the sport. Our drive and our desire. We all have such a fire in our hearts for cheerleading and we all want it so badly,” Murin said.
Murin says the bond she has with her team is more like family. This feeling is reflected throughout the program.
“There are people I can call who cheered here in ’88 that they would come out and actually take care of you if you need it,” CJ Hawkins said.
CJ Hawkins is a member of the big coed team. This is his fourth year with the program. He says he’s proud of what all three teams at Disney have been able to achieve, especially the small, mixed team.
Coleman says the team, known as Smoed, was built to give more athletes opportunities.
When asked what sets his athletes apart, Coleman says their mentality. He says his athletes are hyper-driven, hyper-competitive, and self-motivated.
Now that the season is over, Coleman is already thinking about next year.
“My brain is already moving towards what we need to do to surpass this, which is going to be incredibly difficult,” Coleman said.
Until then, he’s enjoying the success of this season.
We are the most successful cheerleading tradition in the country. I don’t think I could script that. At every opportunity I say I have the greatest job in the world,” said Coleman.
