If you’ve been to Cougar basketball or football games over the past four years you’ve doubtless seen the smiling blonde on top of the pyramid or doing gymnastics level tumbles on the sideline or across the court. Now Hannah Carroll is taking her cheer talent to the next level.

She will be attending Eastern Kentucky University in fall 2020, where she will continue her cheer career. Hannah had this to say of her future on the campus in Richmond, Kentucky, some 30 miles south of Lexington.

“I am so excited to be able to continue my cheer career and be a part of the outstanding Eastern Kentucky cheer program. During my sophomore year I attended a cheer clinic at EKU and fell in love with the campus and knew right away that I wanted to be on that team. Since then, I have been going up to Richmond for multiple clinics and events. EKU competes at College Nationals in Orlando, Florida every year and has placed as high as third in the Nation in the Division 1 category.”

Hannah will major in psychology and pursue guidance counseling in the future. Congratulations Hannah!
