Awesome Thing Of The Day: College Cheerleader Makes Incredible Half Court Trick Shot
February 22, 2013

The young woman in this video is Ashlee Arnau, a cheerleader at William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Last night, during the school's men's basketball game Ashlee made an amazing, acrobatic, half-court shot.

She told the Associated Press she's been trying the shot during halftime of home games this season, but this was the first time she made it on her home floor.

She made it once before at a junior college tournament game, but that one bounced in.

"I didn't count it because I wanted it to go nothing-but-net," she told AP. "Tonight, I was really blessed it happened."

Last night, she nailed it on her fifth try - during the last home game of the season.

Ashlee is 21, and a junior who's studying to become a nurse. Along with cheerleading, she plays soccer and runs track for her university.
