The SMU Pom Squad does more than sideline dances.

Fresh off from competing at the Collegiate Championship of the American Dance/Drill Team, the team is heading to Daytona Beach, Fla.

After a two-year hiatus, the team will be competing at the National Dance Association Collegiate Dance Championship Wednesday through Sunday.

Preparation for Nationals started in the summer. The first step was to qualify at the NDA Collegiate Camp.

This will not be the first time the squad has competed at NDA. SMU is a three-time
