Cheerleading is as American as football or apple pie. It is a national
past time and a colorful display of strength, endurance and aerial
acrobatics. There are an estimated 3 million cheerleaders in the
United States and cheerleading is a staple of American high school and
collegiate sports. From its humble origins as an 1880's Princeton
chant, in recent years it has grown from a sideshow meant to
complement another sport into a sport of its own. The University of
Kentucky cheerleading squad is the best in the country. The U of K
team has won the national championships 14 times in the last twenty
years. 2016
