A few days after adding acrobatics and tumbling to its athletic program, Gannon University has added competitive cheerleading as well.

Gannon athletic director Mark Richard made the announcement today. The university also hired former Widener coach Meghan Foran as the Gannon program’s first head coach.

The new team, which is expected to feature 20 to 30 cheerleaders, is scheduled to begin competing in spring 2014.

The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association sponsored championships in competitive cheer for the first time this past winter. Gannon’s program could give area high school cheerleaders another competitive possibility in college.
