The trio of Emma Harris, Carlie McNeal and Alex Hall will participate in this year’s Shrine Bowl festivities to be held the week of July 14-18, culminating with game day on July 18, 2020 at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls. Fifty-five cheerleaders from across the state of Iowa will come together the week of the game, holding a mini camp on the campus at UNI for hospital children to learn cheerleading skills.
