Meet the Teams

The University of Memphis All-Girl Tigers

All-Girl Tigers Memphis Team PhotoThe University of Memphis All-Girl squad is a new team—created just four years ago, they brought home the National Championship trophy their first time appearing at UCA Nationals. They have since established themselves as one of the best All-Girl teams in the country. In All-Girl cheerleading, groups of women traditionally base stunts. But several Memphis bases are so strong that they can lift a flyer on their own. They are one of the teams nudging the bar for All-Girl cheerleading higher and higher. Still, some of the Memphis women feel like the forgotten step-children to the school’s Coed team. Will they be able to perform at Nationals and get the respect they deserve?
