Fullerton, Calif. - On the heels of winning the 2010 College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championship, the Titans Dance Team has won a second national title.
Competing against other college dance teams from throughout the world, the Titans performed their winning routine Feb. 14-15 at the United Spirit Association's College Spirit and Dance competition at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Fullerton beat last year's champions Cal State Long Beach in both contests. Coming in third was Idaho State. Below Idaho were dance teams from UCLA, USC, University of Oregon, Boise State and a university in Japan.
"Even after several national titles over the past decade, these two -- Universal Dance Association and United Spirit Association -- this year are icing on the cake!" said alumna Sam Shen, the team's co-adviser and herself a former team member. "Our wins encapsulate the entire year as a whole. The team remained focused on being the best, training hard and practicing until the routine was perfect. We had a huge support system from our alum dancers to our parents, family and friends, from our cheer squad and Tuffy to our Athletics Department -- a true team effort."
