The BYU Cougarettes, representing the U.S. National Team, finished second in the Hip Hop Division at the 2019 International Cheer Union World Cheerleading Championships held April 24-26 in Orlando, Florida.

The BYU Cougarettes have won a national championship 19 times. That’s right — the all-female dance crew that often entertains the crowd during breaks at BYU basketball and football games has been crowned the nation’s top dance squad 19 times, including twice this year.

The BYU Cougarettes clinched the National Dance Alliance National Championships in the hip hop and jazz divisions April 5-6 in Daytona, Florida, winning their 18th and 19th national titles.

This year’s Homecoming spectacular brought top-tier performers like Caillat and American Idol runner-up David Archuleta together to perform with BYU Vocal Point, the Cougarettes, Living Legends, Young Ambassadors, Syncopation, Synthesis and Women’s Chorus on Oct. 11–12.
