The cheer team took first place on Saturday, Feb. 3, in their home school, where they hosted the Hornet Invitational.

Senior Jada Brown thinks they handled their mishaps wisely, pulling through with a well-deserved win.

“I think the team did really well on Saturday,” Brown said. “We had some things that could have set us back, but we pulled together and gave it all we could.”

The team earned a total of 224.40 points during round one, 212.90 points during round two, and 301.60 points during round three.
