Lander cheer takes top honors at Clash of the Conferences

GAFFNEY, S.C. – Lander cheerleading earned a win as the All-Girl Division champions and the Grand Champion at the Clash of the Conferences on Sunday at Limestone College. 

The Bearcats were named All-Girl Division champions at the competition that features teams from the Carolinas, Georgia, and Virginia, and were crowned Grand Champion as the highest-scoring team across all intermediate teams, co-ed and all-girl combined. 

"We have spent the past two weeks making our routine more difficult than the one we won Peach Belt with," said spirit coach Kim Schoolfield. "This competition gave us a chance to showcase our updated routine in front of a packed house and get feedback from the judges that will help us prepare for Nationals."

Lander's Peach Belt Conference champion cheer and dance teams will head to Daytona, Fla., in less than two weeks for the NCA College Nationals, April 3-7.
