The University of Texas at Tyler 2011-12 Cheer Squad members have been selected after a record-number turnout for tryouts this semester, Carla Turner, cheer coach, announced.
UT Tyler senior Brooke Romo of Chandler, one of 18 students who auditioned in front of three judges, made the 14-member squad.
Prospects were given specific tryout material to learn only one day before their tryout performance. They prepared for tryouts by attending several open practices hosted by the current Cheer Squad and Full Out Athletics, a local elite cheerleader training facility.
Many of the members will attend a rigorous cheerleader training camp this summer at Texas State University, according to Turner.
