(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – This week the LRHS varsity cheer team heads to national competiton at the ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, FL. The team has been preparing for this weekend since December.

Kowalewski said, “To prepare for nationals, we need more reps in order to be comfortable with the changes we made last week.”

The varsity cheerleading team competes against 20 other teams on Saturday in the preliminary finals. They need to place top ten in order to advance to the semi-finals.

Kowalewski said, “I think we will do very well for a team going to the national high school cheerleading competition for only the second time in school history.”

On Friday Jan. 26, the LRHS varsity cheerleading team went to state competition at the University of Florida in Gainsville, FL. The team did not make it to finals.

Coach Kiana Kowalewski said, “We did great at states and unfortunately one mistake that we have never dealt with before kept us from advancing to finals.”
