COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Ohio State cheerleaders finished 14th at the 2007 UCA College Nationals at Walt Disney World's Wide World of Sports Complex Sunday in Orlando, Fla. The University of Central Florida won the 2007 National Championship.

Ohio State finished 12th last season and was sixth 2005 season after a 15th-place finish at the 2004 nationals. The Buckeyes were seventh in 2003 and were sixth in both 2000 and 2002. Ohio State won the 1993 College Cheerleading National Championship and finished second in 2001.

Ohio State won the Northeast Region competition to qualify for the national competition for the 18th time in the last 20 years. The Buckeyes received an automatic bid to the national competition by winning its region.

The Buckeyes were represented with two teams in the partner stunt competition Saturday. Tara Warrens and Ben Schreiber finished 17th, while the team of Ally Taulbee and Stephen Garrett finished 19th.

The national competition will be televised by ESPN and aired at a later date.
