2012-13 Cheer Team Introduced
New squad has a dozen members
Captains: Catherine Sullivan, Brooke Porter
WAXAHACHIE, Texas -- Second year head coach Alicia Rogers has announced the Southwestern Assemblies of God University cheerleading team much like the competitive athletes on the other teams they support.
The 2012-13 Cheer Team is comprised of veterans, many with backgrounds in gymnastics, dance and drill team, and have played on other sporting teams while growing up.
With apologies to the Christian pop band, they are all blessed with 'audio adrenaline.'
This year’s unit will appear at all five home football games, twelve volleyball matches and at thirty men’s and women’s basketball games.
A 12-person cast who answer the Biblical directive to “be of good cheer” (John 16:33), the Cheer Team will also make cameo appearances at other events, as well as being involved in other projects representing SAGU and their faith.
In short, they are very active!
They condition and train regularly to fulfill their schedule and earn their place among teams at Southwestern.
The squad has one senior, one junior, six sophomores and four freshmen. They consist of ten Texans, an Oklahoman and a Kansan.

At Captain, a 5’7 senior from Waxahachie, Tx; Catherine Sullivan.
