SHELTON STATE COMMUNITY COLLEGE CHEERLEADERS WIN TENTH CONSECUTIVE TITLE (381 hits)

Tuscaloosa, Alabama – It’s been about the number ten all year. Their team word is “TENacious.”
Their inspirational thought for competition was “inTENsity.” For the Shelton State Cheerleaders and
their coach, Christa Grizzle Sanford, working toward a tenth consecutive national title was business as usual, but it meant protecting a legacy ten years in the making.

“I really wanted ten,” Coach Sanford laughingly recalled. “The pressure was no different than it ever
is, but it was hard to ignore that ten in a row is a big deal.” Sanford, now in her twelfth year at
Shelton State, notes that few squads have been able to achieve a similar notoriety. “I’m only aware
of one or possibly two other teams nationwide with a record like ours.” Sanford’s own cheer coach
and mentor, Myron Doan, led one of those winning teams. “To model my own work after his
example is very special to me now.”
