Well-executed jumps, stunts and perfect precision are all requirements for scoring superior at the Universal Cheer Camp at the University of Texas in Austin, but attitudes, manners, and kindness are equally important. These attributes possessed by the Copperas Cove High School cheerleading squad earned them the Most Spirited Award at the highly attended camp earning them a giant banana that the squad has not earned since 2016.

While at camp, the athletes were given material to learn each morning including four cheers, two chants, a rally routine, dance class, and a variety of intermediate to advanced level stunts and then were evaluated that same afternoon on how well they performed the assignments.
