Kiara Nowlin was an elite cheerleader and is currently on the Acrobatics and Gymnastics team at Baylor University.

Kiara was a featured cheerleader on the series Cheerleaders when she was the main tumbler and squad veteran of the California Allstars team Cali Smoed based out of Ventura, California. She has also been featured on the Steve Harvey Show and the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The daughter of Todd and Monique Nowlin, Kiara landed her first back handspring at 2 and a half years old. She began All-Star cheerleading aged four.

Competitions Edit

Tumbling and TrampoliningEdit

Kiara has been competing since she was 10. Her early success was in tumbling; she always placed first or second (and second only once), whereas in trampolining she has placed 4th, 6th, and 7th as well as first.


During her time at CheerForce she always placed third. When she later joined the California Allstars, she repeated her tumbling triumph of repeat golds except on one occasion, a silver at the 2010 Worlds.

Kiara was on the CA Smoed 2013 Team - her final year cheerleading - that won Worlds back-to-back, the first small coed team to do so. However, this was her own personal third consecutive year winning at Worlds as she had been on a different California Allstars team in 2011 that had won their division.
