ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Some Capital District Champion cheerleaders are now back home after they competed at Nationals in Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
The Albany Pop Warner Pee Wee Cheerleading Division placed third overall. Members and their parents raised money themselves for the big trip.
They worked very hard after they won first at local and regional competitions so they could show off their skills.
“There’s a lot of people, there’s a lot of teams, and when you compete, everybody’s looking at you”, said one cheerleader.
Coaches said the girls practice three or four nights every week, perform at games every week, and still the majority of them have above a ninety average in school.
Congrats to them on a great accomplishment.
