The road to nationals began when the squad won the local competition on October 18 then state on November 2 both held in Trenton and this past Sunday, November 16 taking first place all three times.

For a cheerleading or dance squad, the difficult road to the national championship is quite similar to that of the football teams’. A squad will showcase their best two minute and thirty second routine complete with music and cheering at a league championship level. The top squads advance to regional competition via four regional qualifiers in each small, medium and large category, Novice, Intermediate and Advanced.
