PIKEVILLE, Ky. — 2020 Phelps graduate Alyssa Sargent will get to continue her cheerleading career at the collegiate level this upcoming Fall as she has signed with the University of Pikeville Cheer squad.

Sargent has cheered for 15 years and was introduced to Bear fans this past week on the UPIKE Cheer Facebook page.

Sargent says she chose UPIKE because of the family feel and it being so close to home.
