TALENTED TEAM: The NMMU Samsung Cheerleaders became the first national champions –

It was not just three but 22 cheers all round yesterday for the arrival back of NMMU’s latest winning combination.

They are the members of the cheerleading team who lifted the first national varsity title in the activity, which is a combination of athleticism, gymnastics, tumbling and dancing.

The competition, which ran from February 3 to 9 at the University of the North West in Potchefstroom, coincided with the first varsity cricket series.

It saw seven cheerleading teams from universities across the country compete. And with perfect synchronisation, tight tumbling and diverse dance moves the 22-member NMMU Samsung Cheerleader squad came out tops with scores from judges ranging between 72 and 85.
