     After winning the state championship in cheerleading two years in a row, the competitive cheerleading team is working towards a three-peat at the upcoming state competition on January 28 in Gainesville, Florida.

     After a second place finish at regionals, which were held at Coral Springs High School for the first time, the team is prepared to take a third title.

     The team has been plagued with several injuries and illnesses. Flyer Tanyla  Gamble suffered an ankle injury during the season and base Heather Little also suffered a leg injury.

     Senior Carly Neer fought through a stomach virus to perform with her team at regionals.

     “I was terrible sick but I knew my team was counting on me. I hoped we would place high, but a second place win at regionals is actually phenomenal. We are excited to go to Gainesville and see if we can repeat our past success. No matter what happens, I’m so proud of my girls,” Neer said.

     The girls came in second behind Coral Springs Charter, which won’t be in their division at states.

     The team is competing in the small non-tumbling division for the first time. The team is only showcasing 12 members on the mat.

     “We are preparing to bring our best game to states but we won’t be thinking about our past titles. That’s a lot of pressure; we just want to do our best this year,” senior captain Kylie Simmons said.
