The Northridge Cheerleading squad competed in the USA Nationals Cheerleading competition in Las Vegas, Nevada Feb. 10-11, 2008.

After cheering at the Northridge women's basketball game on Feb 9th, the cheer squad boarded a charter bus bound for Las Vegas to make their second consecutive year of competing at the national level.

The Cheerleading squad competed in prelims on Sunday, Feb 10 and with a solid performance, moved on to the finals, which took place the following day.

The event, which was held at the Cashman Center, hosted over 75 teams from all over the country and Canada.

Cal State Northridge made it to the finals of their division and competed against University of Regina, Stanford and Boise State.

Northridge placed second with the eventual winner being Boise State. This was an improvement over last year when the Northridge squad placed 5th.

The 20 squad members are coached by Brianne Strauss.
