VIDEO: Knights Take 2nd in National Cheerleading Championships

The UCF Knights Cheer team captured second place at the national championships last weekend in Orlando, competing against 13 other teams at Walt Disney World Resort.

The Knights have now placed in the Top 10 of the College Cheerleading National Championships 23 times in the past 25 years under head coach Linda Gooch, including national titles in 2003 and 2007. The University of Kentucky took home the Division IA title, and the other top finishers were Ohio State, Alabama and Hawaii.

ESPN is planning to schedule a broadcast about the competition this spring.
