Iona College Cheerleading Squad
Iona's cheerleaders and our Mascot, Killian the Gael, endeavor to work the crowd and build the spirit of both the Iona athletes in action and Iona fans in attendance at games on and off campus. They serve to motivate and inspire a winning spirit for the athletes.
As members of a spirit team at Iona College our mission is to provide the team with an athletic program that will allow them to show their Gael spirit and amazing skills. The team performs at athletic events such as basketball games and competitions, in front of their peers and the community. The team hopes to provide each member with an experience and memories that will last a lifetime.
