Take note of the word "inaugural"...It's kind of a big deal! In the first season that competitive cheer & dance is recognized by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) as a championship sport, our very own Stephens College Starlets snagged an at-large bid and was one of 12 teams to vie for the first-ever NAIA Dance National Championship.
Thursday - NAIA Banquet
After arriving in Oklahoma City, having senior captain Victoria Vitale represent Stephens College at an NAIA Champions of Character event at John Rex Charter Elementary, and a long afternoon of coaches meetings, the Starlets were ready for the first-class NAIA Banquet at the Vast Restaurant. Did I mention that it was on the 49th floor and overlooked downtown OKC? What a view!
