Savannah State University made history by being the first HBCU to win the first-place title at the CheerSport Nationals over the weekend in Atlanta, GA.

The squad, consisting of 12 women and one man, says they did not realize they had accomplished something that had not occurred in the past twenty-four years.

We didn’t know about it until like the last minute and thought about it when they were presenting the award, “Dathan Gooden, the one male on the team said. “And we were just like, oh, we are really, the first HBCU to win this, so we were very, very proud of that.”

In a show of her approval, Ms. Bring It On herself, Gabrielle Union- Wade gave a shout to the team on Twitter.
