SAN ANTONIO (June 23, 2020) – Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) held its inaugural competitive cheer and dance team signing day earlier this month.
Head Coach Crystal Brock commented, "We had 13 athletes sign on June 13 at our signing day committing to our OLLU Saints Spirit Family. Each student-athlete is eager to begin working on creating a legacy of which OLLU faculty, staff and alumni will be proud. Each athlete has a passion to motivate and represent Saints athletics with dignity, class and sportsmanship."
Among the 13 who signed was Nadia Gloria, who will be part of the dance team. Gloria was a member of the OLLU Dance club team last season and is entering her senior year this fall. She is a psychology and criminal justice major and a graduate of East Central High School in San Antonio.
Gloria received the Endowed Scholarship and the Valero Bowl Scholarship at OLLU. Her hobby is dance, and her favorite motto is "The pain you are feeling is nothing compared to the joy that is coming," (Romans 8:18). Her athletic role model is Simone Biles.
