Brainerd Cheer Team Off to UCA Nationals

The Brainerd Cheer team will be competing at the UCA National Competition this weekend in Florida. We had the chance to catch up with Head Coach Carissa Ulness and Co-Captains Kailey Sutton and Raya Unger before their trip.

We asked Coach Ulness how it feels to be the first coach to send Brainerd Cheer to UCA Nationals.


Coach Ulness said they will not change much in their strategy in approaching UCA Nationals.


Co-Captain Kaylee Sutton said she's happy to go to Nationals as it's been something she's been working toward for a while.


Co-Captain Raya Unger on the other hand more recently learned of Nationals, but is equally as excited to go and compete.


The Brainerd Cheer team will first compete on Saturday morning at the UCA National Competition.
