I notice that very few college teams compete at the NCA College Nationals as opposed to the UCA College Nationals. Sure there are top teams like Louisville, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and SFA, but the competition is rather light down in Daytona. Thoughts?
It did feel a little less crowded than other years, but the competition was fierce. South Carolina gave Louisville some good competition and Division 1 was very competitive. Division III really kicked up their game over years past. I didn't get to see all the coed teams but the community college division had powerhouses Navarro and Trinity Valley who did not disappoint.
What I enjoy about NCA is the style of cheer, especially in the coed division. The male cheerleaders are mostly cheerleaders who have been all stars and are awesome tumblers and dancers, in addition to their ability to toss flyers around. I also prefer Daytona Beach to another day at the house of mouse.
