The University of Kentucky is nationally recognized for their historic-to-date success in men’s basketball. While the Wildcats are nationally recognized as an above-average school in many sports, cheerleading is one that (like basketball) they’ve dominated for the last 36 years.
In fact, Kentucky has won the cheerleading national title 24 of the last 36 seasons, a dominant run that most likely won’t ever be touched. Four of their 24 title actually came consecutively, starting in 2016 and running through the 2019 season.
However, on Sunday evening, it was announced that Kentucky took third place this year at the national championships. Kentucky finished behind Alabama (second) and Central Florida (the 2020 champion). While it wasn’t five years in a row of winning for the Wildcats, ‘twas indeed a top-three finish that is far from anything to sneeze at. Wildly enough, Kentucky has enjoyed at-worst a top-two finish for 30 of the last 36 years.
Kentucky will very likely be in contention for a top-finish next season, but for now they’ll enjoy a top-three placement for 2020. Congratulations, Wildcats!
