National High School Cheerleading Championships

CORBIN — Cheerleading squads from two area school districts walked away with trophies from the National High School Cheerleading Championship held last weekend at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla.

The North Laurel High School squad placed first in the Medium Varsity Division of the National High School Cheerleading Championship —beating 34 other teams. The squad also received first place in the Medium Division World School Championship and the International Cup for highest score in the World School Competition.

That focus allowed the team to hit its routine and Wood said taking home three trophies was “icing on the cake.”  Wood’s team will compete next Feb. 23 at the state competition, which was postponed due to weather.
