Tryouts for the first UCI cheerleading squad (aka songleaders) occurred at Gateway Plaza in November 1965. The first UCI varsity basketball game took place on December 1, 1965, at Campus Hall. Wearing their ZOT pins, the new songleaders helped cheer the team on to a 85-71 victory over UC Riverside.
