Welcome national champions home tonight at 6:15 p.m.

In celebration of ULM Cheerleaders capturing the National Championship title, all ULM faculty, staff, students and the community are encouraged to welcome the team home tonight at 6:15 p.m. behind Fant-Ewing Coliseum, on the side located closest to Malone Stadium. Fans may park near the tennis courts.

The cheerleaders placed first at the Universal Cheerleading Association National Championship Jan. 19 in Orlando, Fla., competing in the small co-ed division I.

This is the third ULM national championship title in five years; the
team also won in 2004 and 2005.

Amy Weems, assistant dean of Student Life and Leadership at ULM, expressed her pride in the ULM students.

"We are so proud of our students for their excellent performance and support of each other throughout this competition. UCA is one of the largest and most competitive divisions in the country and our top rankings reflect the leadership of our coaches and spirit group staff."

Captain Tiffany Coker will always remember today's win. This is her fourth year to compete and her second national championship win.

"This has been an amazing year for the cheerleaders. We have had so many great opportunities to show our pride and spirit for ULM. From getting to cheer on our football team and watch them beat Alabama to bringing home our own big win ... It has been a year we will always remember."
