SAN ANTONIO (July 2, 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 freshman Jacqueline Baldazo (FR/San Antonio, Texas). The San Antonio native will join the Competitive Dance team and attended Burbank High School. She was voted most talented, most involved and most athletic while at Burbank. Baldazo also was a Division 1 soloist in the HTE dance competition, qualified for regionals in cross-country in 2018, received the Valero Alamo Bowl Scholarship and was the 2019-2020 Miss Burbank High school titleholder.
She received the OLLU Presidential Excellence Scholarship and Dance Team Scholarship.
