Alcorn cheerleading tryouts slated for next weekend

The Alcorn State University cheerleading squad is looking to add more talented girls to help spread cheer and school spirit.

Alcorn cheerleading tryouts will be held Saturday, April 30 in the E. E. Simmons Gymnasium from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Participants are required to pay a $50, non-refundable registration fee. Cheerleading coach Candance Buford looks forward to welcoming new participants to the cheerleading squad.

“I’m excited,” said Buford. “After having an awesome season last year, I can’t wait to see what 2016 holds for us.”

Buford said she’s looking for individuals who understand the work that goes into becoming an elite cheerleader.

“I truly want individuals who actually care about cheer. I want people who actually know all the effort and skill it takes to be a cheerleader. I would love to see more tumblers come out.”
