MURRAY, KY - Murray State University has announced the hiring of Brittany Walls as the Racers’ head cheer coach for the 2013-14 academic year. Walls comes to Murray State after coaching the all-girl squads at Reidland High School from 2009-13.
“We are fortunate to have someone with the experience and passion that Brittany brings to the Racer cheer team,” said Murray State associate athletic director Paul Bubb. “Brittany is also a former MSU cheerleader and her Racer pride was evident when we met and spoke about the position.”
Walls cheered at Murray State from 2006-08 while majoring in public relations and minoring in marketing. She has also been involved with coaching all-star teams and the Upward program. Walls began cheering in elementary school, continued through high school at nearby Marshall County and then finished her cheer career at Murray State.
The Murray State cheer team is heavily involved in promoting Racer Athletics through community activities as well as their visibility at home football and basketball games. Tryouts for the team were held on May 5 with 20 members selected for the 2013-14 squad.
