ORLANDO, FLORIDA — The Sheboygan South High Co-Ed Cheer Team fell short of making the finals Saturday at UCA Nationals in Orlando, Florida but it still has much to feel good about.
The Cheer Team left Sheboygan on Wednesday evening and arrived in Orlando on Thursday afternoon.
“Extremely proud of what my team accomplished today!” said Coach Ben Roelse. “We may have not made it to finals, but they gave it their all and left it all on the mat. That is all that I ask of them.”
The team was just shy of 15 points from first place.
“We threw a perfect routine.” tweeted senior Randi Weber. However, the team did not make it to finals. ”We performed the best we’ve done yet.” added Nikki Michaels.
Cheerleaders will enjoy Sunday at Walt Disney World Resort before returning to Sheboygan.
The team is expected back to Sheboygan at approximately 2:30 PM on Monday.
The team will then perform at WACPC Regionals on Saturday, February 26.
