The Tiger Girls gained nationwide attention at the 2022 UDA College Nationals with an award-winning hip-hop routine to "Like a Boy." After taking home first place, the performance went viral and became a symbol of female empowerment in sports. This year, the team earned first place in hip-hop and third place in jazz, marking the first time the team has placed top three in both the D1A hip-hop and jazz categories.

Haidet joins a distinguished roster of LSU female athletes who partner with McKernan, including Kyla Hebert and Mikaylah Williams. This collaboration underscores a shared commitment to fostering empowerment, breaking barriers and celebrating the outstanding achievements of female athletes.
