But when it comes to former Lone Grove and current Oklahoma State University cheerleader Londyn Kozar, three is most certainly a welcome number in her world, especially after earlier this month.

Kozar and her OSU teammates won their sixth straight STUNT National Title in Division I, and the second straight for the former Lady Horns cheer member, as they claimed it at the Lloyd Noble Center on the campus of the University of Oklahoma in Norman.

The title was the third national title for Kozar since she joined the OSU cheer program to go with a STUNT National title she won her freshman year, as well as an NCA National title she won earlier this year in Daytona Beach, Florida. 

“Winning this last national title was more emotional than the last to be honest,” Kozar said. “I’ve just been overwhelmed by the gratitude I have for the OSU cheer program and all it has given me. I’ve gotten to make lifelong friends, grow up and make memories that I’m going to cherish forever.” 

“When I tried out in 2017 for this team, I didn’t even think I’d make the squad to be honest,” Kozar added. “Now I’ve won three national titles with my teammates and I’m going into my third year with this squad. This has just been a dream come true for me.”

Oklahoma State entered the competition as the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament, and had to face off with Cal Poly in the opening round.

A 19-4 result sent Kozar and her teammates to the semifinals where they handled a tough Michigan State University team by a narrow score of 18-12.

After MSU won an elimination contest against Texas Tech, it set up a rematch with Oklahoma State, which proved to be no problem as OSU won 20-7 for the national title.

Oklahoma State then faced off with Division II/III champion Davenport University for the Varsity Division championship, which Davenport University claimed. 

Plainview High School was also represented at the competition as Ardmore’s own Jordan Lewis competed for the Oklahoma Baptist University squad which made it to the semifinals of the Division II/III bracket.

“The success of our STUNT team has, all comes from our coach Lindsay Bracken,” Kozar said. “She knows the game inside and out, and has a strategy for every team we play. Additionally she prepares us quite well, and we basically practice until we have it perfect. We always joke that STUNT practice is the worst thing in the world, but a STUNT game is the most fun.” 

Making the occasion more special for Kozar was that the competition was close to home for her friends and family, so they could attend and watch her perform in person.

“Getting to perform in Norman was so much more fun for me,” Kozar said. “My parents always make sure they’re there in person watching me for a big performance. But it was special getting to have my grandparents out there as well as other family friends who were able to make it out there.”
