This past weekend, Feb. 10- 12, Broken Arrow’s Varsity Cheer team traveled to Orlando, Florida to compete in UCA Nationals.
The varsity team split up into two different teams to compete at nationals: a coed team and an all girl team. Both teams made it to finals in their divisions, and coed took the eighth place title while all girl took tenth.
“Our goal was to make finals in each Division and place in the top ten,” head coach Amy Howe said. “We accomplished both of these goals so I was happy with their placement. We did not have perfect routines in finals so we would have placed higher had it been perfect but I was happy that we accomplished our goal as a team.”
The varsity cheerleaders had been working hard for months in order to get ready for nationals, and they practiced every week day for the past four months. Every practice was used to learn the choreography, synchronize tumbling passes and perfecting all of their stunts.
“My favorite part of nationals was the feeling of hitting a perfect routine,” senior Grady Coppage said.
Aside from competing, the team also got to visit multiple Disney parks.
“My favorite part of nationals was bonding with my team at the happiest place on earth,” junior Reina Mckee said. “Our goal was to make top ten and that’s what both teams did.”
The varsity cheer team can still be seen cheering on the Tiger basketball teams at games.
