It has recently been announced by USA Cheer, that Hiram College STUNT team sophomore, Alex Murray, has been named a 2019 Second-Team All-American.
Murray helped lead the Terrier STUNT program to a winning record in their inaugural campaign, as Hiram finished the year with a 7-5 mark, including wins over Purdue University, Tiffin University and Olivet College.
Murray was one of just 23 athletes from around the country to be named a Division II All-American, and she becomes the first Terrier to garner the status.
Throughout the 2019 season, Murray was one of the most consistent performers for the Terriers, competing in all 12 games, while performing in all 185 routines on the year. She was one of three Terriers to snag 100+ routine wins, and led Hiram with 109 victories.
Murray's rating of 15.917 was also the tops on the team as she posted a .589 winning percentage.
"I am incredibly proud that Alex is the program's first All American," commented head coach Samantha Campbell. "She earned this honor by dedicating herself to the sport and the team throughout the entire year, and her knowledge of the skills involved in STUNT routines assisted in her success.
"Alex has years of experience that allowed her to lead our young team and instill confidence in her teammates. She credits the support of her teammates as being one of the reasons she gained tumbling skills this year, and that just shows the kind of team member Alex is--she will do anything for this team.
"She stepped into any role we needed in order to make the routines hit, and was a huge part of the team's success this first season. With her being only a sophomore, I have no doubt we will see more successes and honors in her future."
