Title Defended! WilmU Cheer Earns 10th UCA National Championship

Wilmington University Cheerleading team

In February, the Wilmington University Cheerleading team successfully defended its Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) College Open Small Coed National Championship, making it 10 titles since 2012. The Wildcats won eight consecutive Open Small Coed (formerly Division II Small Coed) titles from 2012 to 2019 and have now won back-to-back titles. It is the fifth national championship under current Head Coach Ashley Mundy.

“Winning a national championship takes more than talent and hard work,” says Mundy. “It requires a lot of dedication, teamwork, and a strong sense of purpose. This year’s team demonstrated these qualities and proved that anything is possible when we work together toward a common goal.”

Mundy says that seeing the cheerleaders hit a flawless routine in finals was a “moment of pure joy,” adding that the triumph made all the challenging moments throughout the season worth it. “While it’s my fifth as head coach, I’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of 10 national titles. Each championship has been special, and hearing Wilmington University announced as national champions will never get old.” 

Mundy, her team, and the coaching staff were honored at a men’s basketball game at the Wilmington University Athletics Complex.
