On a beautiful cloudy morning in October, I walked onto Pepperdine's grassy Alumni Park with the pom squad for a team photo shoot. We were planning to just do a group photo and an individual for everyone, but once the girls' energy and personalities started showing through, it quickly turned into so much more.
Scroll down to see some impressive jumps and kicks, warm smiles & genuine friendship. So proud of these ladies and grateful for their dedication to helping support Pepperdine's athletes and fans.
