Submitted on February 28, 2019
More firsts continue to roll in for Georgetown College competitive cheerleading. While the Tigers did not earn a bid to the upcoming NAIA National Championship, spirits are high following the first modern era GC cheer All-American honoree.
Senior Madi Webster was one of 18 NAIA All-Americans announced Tuesday afternoon.
“It comes as no surprise to us that Madi would be our first All-American or that she scored so highly in the competition,” Tiger coach Joanie Alexander said. “I’m so proud of Madi for accomplishing this.”
Webster, who was 2015-16 Mid-South Conference Freshman of the Year honoree, competed in a series of skills this past weekend at the NAIA Regional Championship. She performed a toe-touch tuck, triple jump combination, round-off handspring full, and a full-up extended stunt.
In tryouts, she scored 18-of-20 points.
“Madi is not only a talented athlete and leader on the mat for us,” Alexander said, “but also a fantastic student, majoring in athletic training. She is a campus leader and as a senior on this year’s team, she will be greatly missed.
“I am so thankful to have had the honor to coach her. She has been an asset on the Tiger cheer team and will definitely be hard to replace. She will be seen as building the foundation for what we hope are bigger things to come for this program at the national level and more All-Americans. She set the bar high.”
The Oden, Ind. native also earned MSC All-Academic honors as a junior.
