OCEAN CITY, MD – The Arthur L. Johnson Varsity Cheerleading team competed at Reach the Beach National Cheerleading Championship in Ocean City, Maryland on February 22 and 23.

This was the first time in history that Johnson’s cheer team competed at nationals. During the event, teams compete for the national title against schools from all over the nation. Hosted by American Cheer & Dance Academy at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center, the competition had a “beach” theme.  

The “recreation and school” only national championship is one of the largest cheer events of the year.  Johnson competed against six other high schools in the advanced varsity large division.
