Brescia Hires Local for Head Coach of New Cheer and Dance Program

Brescia University has named Kendal Connor the head coach of the newly added Competitive Cheer and Dance Team.

Connor is a native of Whitesville, Kentucky and is a graduate of Trinity High School in Whitesville, Kentucky. She holds an Associate of Arts degree from Owensboro Community and Technical College and has been the Assistant Dance Coach at Daviess County High School since 2012.

During her six years with the team, they have won numerous competitions, including five regional grand championships, and placing in the top 10 at NDA Nationals for five years. Most recently, she helped lead the Pantherettes of Daviess County High School to a state title at the 2017 State Dance Competition. The team will compete at the national level in March 2017.

“I am so excited to have this opportunity to work at Brescia University,” stated Connor. “I’m honored to have been chosen to be the coach for this soon-to-be amazing program. I have a lot of plans and goals for my team, and can’t wait to get started!”

The Competitive Cheer and Dance team was announced earlier this year as an addition to the host of athletic programs offered by Brescia University. The program, beginning Fall 2017, will be one of only two programs in the Commonwealth at independent institutions to offer scholarships to incoming freshmen.

The program will be co-ed and will involve students participating in competition, as well as, cheering at Brescia University athletic events.
