From the press release :
Bartlett, Tenn., April 4, 2018 – USA Cheer, the governing body for cheer in the US announced today that the 2018 College STUNT National Championship will be held in the Jenison Field House on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich. April 27 – 29, 2018.
The Championship weekend will kick off Friday night with the inaugural Varsity STUNT Championship game. This game pairs Alma College and Davenport University, two top ranked STUNT teams that compete as a Varsity sport program under their school’s athletics department during the spring season. Davenport has claimed several championship titles in the past, and Alma was a close second in 2017, and holds the number one seed for the first time in 2018.
The games on April 28th and 29th will feature the all-around top four teams (Varsity and Club) in both Open Division I and Open Division II. Alma College and Davenport University will also be competing in the Open Division II, along with the University of Central Oklahoma and Oklahoma Baptist University. The Open Division I will feature matchups between number one seed Oklahoma State University, number two seed Michigan State University, number three seed Sacramento State University and number four seed Texas Tech University.
“We are excited to invite these talented teams to Michigan for our eighth College STUNT National Championship,” says Lauri Harris, Executive Director of USA Cheer, which developed the format of STUNT in collaboration with cheerleading experts, women’s sports experts and coaches from colleges and universities with long histories of cheerleading excellence. “The coaches and athletes have shown a remarkable dedication for this new sport, and an enthusiasm for demonstrating what makes STUNT unique. Once an athlete tries the STUNT format, she is hooked!”
Women’s STUNT, the new varsity sport derived from cheerleading launched by USA Cheer, is in its eighth season at the college level and fourth for high school. More than 50 colleges have participated over the past seven seasons, and more than 100 high schools from nine states have participated, making STUNT the fastest growing female sport in the country. Developed to meet the requirements of a sport under Title IX, STUNT takes the athletic skills of cheerleading— partner stunts, jumps, tumbling and pyramids —and creates a full, hour long format that challenges teams in head-to-head competition.
The preliminary rounds of the 2018 College STUNT National Championship will be aired Friday and Saturday via Facebook Live at facebook.com/stuntthesport. Sunday’s Finals will be shown live on ESPN3, on April 29th.
