PHILIPPI -

The Alderson-Broaddus athletic department continues to expand as they keep adding sports programs. The latest addition is an Acrobats and Tumbling team that will compete at the varsity level.

Only eight other schools in the country have the women's program, the closest of which is WVIAC counterpart, Fairmont State.

The collegiate sport of Acrobatics and Tumbling continues to grow with the addition of Alderson-Broaddus, a member of the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC). A-B will begin competition in Acrobatics and Tumbling in the 2013 season and has already been granted membership into the National Collegiate Acrobatics and Tumbling Association (NCATA).

"With the continued strategic growth of the College and athletic department, it was clear that Acrobatics and Tumbling fits perfectly into our overall plan," said Denny Creehan, director of athletics. "We see great potential for female student athletes."
