2010 BYU Cougarettes champions again

For the eighth time in the past 13 years, the Brigham Young University Cougarettes are the National College Dance Team Champions.

Competing against schools from all over the country at the National Dance Alliance's National Championships April 9-13 , the Cougarettes recorded a score of 9.860, edging out the University of Louisville (9.831) for the 2010 title. The 20-member squad posted the highest score of all three divisions, giving BYU the Grand National Championship as well.

"This means a lot to our program. We didn't have a chance to compete last year, so coming back this year to win it all is very exciting," said Cougarette head coach Jodi Maxfield. "We've been working hard since last April, and I believe this was the best routine we've ever performed. I'm so proud of the girls for their hard work, dedication and the way they represented Brigham Young University."
