TVCC cheerleaders compete for 10th win
Special to The Monitor
ATHENS–The Trinity Valley Community College (TVCC) Cheerleaders will have 10 wins if they are successful in Daytona, Fla., this week.
The TVCC group was named the best junior college cheer team in the nation in 1989, 1990, 1991, 1993, 1996, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2008 by the National Cheerleaders Association.
The Athens cheerleading team left Tuesday for Daytona to see if they have what it takes to take home another national title.
“We’re really excited about our performance this year,” coach Charlie Hueber said.
Hueber served as the team’s coach last year but now serves as the college’s judicial officer and still works with the cheer team.
The team, under the direction of Coach Khris Franklin, was set to compete in the first round of the NCA event Thursday. Upon selection, they will have competed in the final round Friday.
In the 2011 competition, the Cardinal group took second place, falling four-tenths of a point behind Corsicana’s Navarro College. Texas schools swept the competition, with Tyler Junior College taking third place.
This year, said Hueber, the Cardinal Cheerleaders are hoping to take advantage of Franklin’s experience in the field to give them the edge into first place. Franklin, who is in his first year heading up the team, has an extensive background in competitive cheer.
He is also the only cheerleading coach in the history of the TVCC program to have been a cheerleader.
“This is not a ‘safe’ routine,” he said before departing for the competetion. “It’s edgy and we’ve gone for a lot of complex choreography and lots of technical advantages that we hope will maximize the scorecard.”
There have been some changes in the scoring this year that the team’s coaching staff members hope will work to the Cardinals’ advantage.
For example, said Hueber, one of the areas where the team scored lowest last year has been removed as an individual category.
“We hope to be able to make good use of the current score system. Khris really pushes the boundaries with this routine,” Hueber said.
The routine is split into two pieces, a traditional cheer similar to what the team would perform at a game and a dance-style portion that is primarily stunt-centered. Hueber said the second part of this year’s routine takes real advantage of the TVCC group’s strong tumbling skills.
In addition to the team competition, TVCC cheerleaders Onca Dutton of Tucson, Ariz., and Alyssa Kahoe of El Paso, will participate in a partner competition Saturday.
To compete in the partner round, said Hueber, a pair must submit a video and then be chosen to qualify.
“They take only the top ten videos,” he added. “And we’re the only junior college in the nation to have a pair qualify for the partner round.”
The first NCA College National Championship was held in Dallas in 1981. The event was moved to the sunny shores of Daytona Beach in 1996.
Results are posted on the TVCC Facebook page and at www.nca.varsity.com.

Each year attendees and their pets join together at the intersection of FM 314 and FM 279, half way between Canton and Tyler, to discover a variety of unique, high-quality, handmade items.
These items include one-of-a-kind carved and painted gourds, hand-dyed yarns, stained glass, handcrafted wooden toys, fused glass jewelry, handmade soaps, cakes, jellies and candles.
Attendees may also enjoy a variety of tasty food, live music, a pet-parade (yes, really!) and a live auction that benefits the Edom Volunteer Fire Department.
A huge children’s activity area, complete with pony and train rides, bounce houses, karaoke, rock climbing, dance performances and more, will also be available.
As an added bonus, a Classic Car show spices up Saturday night along with an old-fashioned ’50s street dance band.
