LDS Cheerleader Chosen to Represent USA on World Stage

BYU cheerleader Anna Richey has been selected to represent the United States in the 2015 Cheerleading Worlds Championship in Orlando, Florida, for the second time.

Richey has been cheering competitively since a young age and is currently a senior captain on the BYU Spirit Squad. Her dream since the age of 16 has been to be on Team USA competing in the Super Bowl of cheerleading.

Participants trying out for this elite team are required to perform in a group. In 2014 Richey didn’t have a group to tryout with, but this didn’t stop her from chasing her dream. She requested to tryout individually and was given permission to do so.
