The University of Kansas’ Rock Chalk Dancers placed third at the UCA/UDA College National Championships in Orlando, Fla., over the weekend. The result was an improvement on their fifth place finish at the same competition a year ago. The Jayhawks were edged out by the University of Minnesota and the University of Tennessee.

The Kansas Cheer Squad had a strong performance but did not advance to the finals of the competition.

The third place finish by the dance team marks the third consecutive year the team had a top-five result.
