CANYON, Texas (KFDA) - West Texas A&M University shared their decision with cheer and dance coaches on March 11 that the programs will conclude March 31, joining together a new spirit team called the “University Spirit”. That includes spirit teams, Maroon Platoon and Bucky the mascot. The group will likely be comprised of 24 members who will receive a scholarship to offset some educational expenses.

Traditional cheer routines that involve tumbling and stunting will no longer be part of future performances.

The cheer team created a petition asking fans to save WT cheer.
