The 2009-2010 academic year marked the return of the PHCC cheer program after a long absence. The program began in 1992 with the hiring of Bobby Bowman as PHCC’s athletic director and head basketball coach. At that time physical education was a requirement towards the Associate of Arts degree and two credits were earned to cheer for PHCC’s basketball team.
The PHCC cheer team is back and they are raising school spirit. Being a member of the Pasco-Hernando Community College cheer team requires a great deal of commitment and dedication. The cheer team promotes school spirit on campus and at all home basketball games.
The 2012-2013 PHCC cheerleading team earned Silver in the Florida State Cheer and Dance Championship competition in College Level 6 Co-ed. The routine the team performed was choreographed by team member Alexis Webb with contributions by all members of the team. The routine included a one-man stunt, basket tosses, tumbling, and an original dance.
