Jag Cheer’s Road to UCA Nationals 📣| IUPUI VLOG

Hi guys, my name is Olivia Brite. I’m an IUPUI cheerleader and
this is our Road to Nationals. [MUSIC] So, just a little bit about me. I am a freshman here at IUPUI,
this is my second semester. I’ve been cheering for
about six or seven years, so but this is obviously my first
year on the IUPUI team. My major is Public Safety Management
through the O’Neill School here at IUPUI. And I’m an IUPUI cheerleader
if you couldn’t tell. So, over the next few days I’m going
to be showing you guys firsthand what it’s really like to be
a student-athlete here at IUPUI and a college cheerleader on
the way to Nationals. So I’m really excited to show you guys. This morning I am going to have three
classes and I have a practice this afternoon and that’s the last practice
before we leave for Nationals tomorrow. All right, guys I just got done with
my Public Safety in America class. It looks like I’m gonna have a little
bit of homework to balance while I’m at Nationals, no big deal. It’s all a part of being
a student-athlete here at IUPUI. When you’re a student-athlete you’re still
expected to keep up with the school work as if you were still here. So especially for the teams that
travel a lot more than we do, it’s kind of hard to balance
everything when you have games and practices on the same day that
the big assignments are due. So you really have to make sure that
you can manage your time properly and really get your stuff done so
you don’t fall behind in all your classes. All right guys, so
it is 5:45, and I am headed, well I’m in the NAT now for the last
practice before we leave for Nationals. This practice isn’t probably going to be
too hardcore like our other practices are. But in the last two weeks we’ve
had 16 practices, 7 games, and 3 like special showcase performances all
to prep for our Nationals competition. Which we leave for tomorrow and I still
haven’t pack so we’re vibing it’s okay. Do you guys wanna meet my team? Here’s Makayla. Hi Makayla, say hi to the vlog.>>Hello.
>>Makayla is my main base. She lifts me up and
saves my life all the time. Do you wanna meet the rest of my team? Hey team, say hi to the vlog!>>Hi, vlog!>>[INAUDIBLE] it’s so cute.>>That’s so sweet, I’m gonna cry!>>Hold on.
>>I knew that’s what you were doing. I was like-

got some food, and now we are settled in for the night. Good night guys. [MUSIC] All right, good morning guys. It is officially day three. Day three?>>Day three.>>Day three, it’s competition day. We have about 50 minutes to get ready. So I’m gonna do that really quick and

I guess. We have to be back to meet to
go back to awards at 2:30 and then we will see how we did. I’m going to jump on my laptop,
get connected to some WiFI hopefully, and get some homework done, so I’m not falling
behind in my classes when I come back so. All right, guys so
we are dressed up and ready to go. We are heading to awards right now. Are we excited?>>Whoo!>>Yeah!>>We had a pretty solid routing so.>>It was a hit this morning.>>It was a hit. It was a good hit too, so
we’ll see how that goes. [MUSIC] All right,

we have to get inside. We are at the end of our practice,
the end of our day.>>2, 3 D1! Roar.>>Hey.>>Go Jags.>>All right, guys so
it’s currently like 10:30. 10:30?>>[INAUDIBLE]
>>Somewhere around there it’s like 10:30. We did our game day routine today and
tomorrow we have to be ready at 9:00 a.m. again. And we’ll do our D1 routine and
so we’ll see how that goes. But I’m pretty confident,
a little bit nervous. It’s a harder routine. And we’ve been working a lot more on this
routine than we were on the other one so it’s kind of more high stakes. It’s a tough division but
I think we can do it. So with that, I’m gonna say goodnight and
see you tomorrow morning. [MUSIC] Good morning guys. It’s officially day four. Today we compete in the D1 division. We have to meet for transit to
practice in about 5 minutes, and then we’ll go to practice,
and then we will compete. And then we will hang out and
watch all the other teams all day, and it’ll be a great day. We are on the way to the bus, and we are
gonna go warm up and compete like I said.>>Let’s go!>>I’m really tired-

>>We’re going to finals.>>Let’s go.>>All right, guys so we made it
finals which is super, super exciting. IUPUI hasn’t been to
Nationals in four years, and the fact->>Since-
>>That we->>2015.>>Yeah, so that’s pretty much five years. So the fact that we made it to finals on
the first try is pretty freaking great. We have about 10 minutes to
like recollect ourselves. Make sure we look all pretty, ready to go. And then we’ll have a little bit of
warmups, pictures, warmups again and then we’ll compete at 5:18 for
the second time today, so->>Whoo!>>We are going to finals awards and whoo!>>Cause we just competed and

16 from the [INAUDIBLE]?>>Yes.>>8 out of 16. And this is our first year so we are
super, super happy, super, super pumped. We hit 0 and we did the best
routine that we’ve ever done, so that is really what we
are banging on right now. What? Hitting 0 means that you have every
single like piece of your routine and->>Nothing fell.>>Nothing fell or like nothing majorly bobbled which is like
when it almost falls but it doesn’t fall. So yeah,
