Recovering from a disastrous prelims, the St. Ambrose Cheerleading Team rallied back during finals to take fourth place among the top nine teams in the country in the NAIA Small Coed Division at the 2012 NCA College Nationals in Daytona Beach, Fla.
Coach Felicia Miles said, "This year was a tough year as the division grew from six to nine teams bringing in some of the best teams in the country who have previously held national titles. My team had quite a bit of nerves going into prelims after watching the competition in practice. I think they psyched themselves out before they even hit the mat. But on Friday, they stepped up to the plate, and I think they showed the competition just what they have to look forward to next year."
