The DBU Spirit Teams competed at the NCA and NDA College Nationals this past week in Daytona Beach, Florida, with both teams once again taking home National Championships.

At NDA College Nationals, the Patriettes Dance Team took home, for the second year in a row, first place in the Division II Pom category, even beating their winning score from last year. The Patriettes then went on to the DTU College Classic to compete amongst both DI & DII teams in the pom division, taking home second place by a close 0.74 points.

"To be this close to such an established DI program was the cherry on top of our competition season. The future for our program is incredibly bright," said Patriettes Head Coach, Brittni Bean.

While at The College Classic, the Patriettes were also the only DII team to get selected for the All-Division Pom Battle, which was a show off for all the top teams, including Arizona State University, Kansas State University, and Stephen F. Austin University.

The same week, the DBU Cheer team competed at NCA College Nationals in Daytona Beach, where they looked to defend their 2021 NCA title. The Patriot Cheer Squad competed in the Division II Intermediate All-Girl Division with a total of 15 teams, making it one of the largest divisions at NCA. DBU Cheer earned a final score of 96.21, securing their second National Championship in two years and achieving their highest score in program history.

"We dealt with countless injuries and sickness the last three weeks leading up to competition that would easily defeat any team," said DBU Cheer Head Coach, Callie Taylor. "Winning another championship is a huge accomplishment, but seeing how much this team came together, loved one another well, and put their trust and reliance in the Lord is so much better."
