Congratulations to Class of 2020 Pirate graduate Jala Oxendine for making the UNCP Spirit Squad!
In order to tryout, she had to master material provided to her by the coach. Other requirements include: Toe touch and jump of choice, knowledge of correct motion placement, knowledge/experience in stunting (Extensions, One-leg stunts, cradle variations, basket tosses and pyramids), Bases and Back spots must be able to base two-leg stunts, one-leg stunts and cradle variations (Jala is a backspot).
Tumbling is not required but does increase the chances of making the team.
As a Pirate, Jala played soccer for two years and cheered for four years. She was a member of the Beta Club, National Honor Society, National Technical Honor Society, NASA Club, and the HOSA Club.
