The Davie High School competition cheerleading placed eighth out of 113 teams at the National High School Cheerleading Championship by Universial Cheerleaders Association, held Feb. 10-12 at the Walt Disney Resort in Orlando, Fla.

“Our team competed in four rounds of competition in three days,” said Coach Angie Stage. “Each time, half of the teams were eliminated.”

Her team, she said, performed remarkably.

“They never dropped a stunt all weekend. The finals routine had the highest score for Davie County at nationals of 92. This was the most competitive division of the weekend.

“Ending in the top seven percent of all the teams is a huge accomplishment,”  Stage said.

This year’s event hosted 1,125 teams from 33 states. Teams must have qualified at a regional competition in 2022.  Davie County competed in the traditional routine  Small Varsity Division 1.
