Spirit Squad Alumni Email List

One of the first things I wanted to do as the KU cheer coach was to set up a KU Spirit Squad Alumni email list so that we can all stay in touch and spread the word about alumni events. If you're a former KU Spirit Squad member and would like to join the list, visit our KU Spirit Alumni Yahoo Group then click the "Join This Group!" button.

KU Spirit Reunions

In the spirit of tradition, we'll reunite to cheer the Jayhawks at homecoming. All former Spirit Squad members, including cheerleaders, yell leaders, Crimson Girls, Baby Blues, Rock Chalk Dancers, Red Peppers, Jay Janes, KuKus, PomPon girls and mascots, are invited to attend. This spirit-filled day will include a pre-game tailgate and pep rally on the Hill, the chance to reminisce with former spirit members, an opportunity to attend the game and in-game recognition. For further information, visit the
Alumni Association's Spirit Reunion page.

KU's first cheer squad in 1899.

Our goal is to record the roster names and photo of every KU cheer squad since the first one in 1899. Email me ( any info you can remember that isn't already listed (or correct any mistakes you see) in the tabs above, such as names of squad members (including yourself!), coaches, coordinators, squad photos, and nationals results. Include the school year (eg, "1985/1986") for each piece of info, and if possible list women with their maiden name and married name (eg, "Jane (Doe) Smith"). Include a couple photos if you have them!
