Gator Gabby earns spot on IU Cheer Team

Gabrielle “Gabby’’ Leier is now an Xavier Gator, but she soon will become an Indiana Hoosier!!

The senior cheerleader recently received word that she has made the Indiana University Competitive and nationally ranked Cheer Team.

She was selected from among hundreds of students and has scholarships to IU for academics.

And you just might see Leier in the Olympics one day because Cheer is now recognized as an Olympic sport. Indiana’s coaches also coach the Olympic and Team USA teams.

Congratulations, Gabby!!
Xavier's Gabby Leier.
