The team was founded by Adam Yaw in 2016 after Washington hadn't been home to a level 6 all-star cheer team in roughly seven years. At the time, level 6 cheer was the highest level in all-star and reflected their collegiate nature. They became the first level 6 team from Washington to ever compete at the Worlds Cheerleading Championships. Later in 2019 - with the help of additional coach, Josh Hengesteg - this talented crew earned entry to Worlds once again. They finished 7th overall and top 4 from the U.S., thus ranking and scoring the highest of any team (from any division) from Washington. Now, with level 7 being the new 6, the program has earned entry to Worlds again in 2021.
