Cheer-team takes first place

Two cheer-team squads from Three Rivers had a successful experience in a national competition last weekend in Virginia Beach, Va.

Caroline Goodall, coach for the Three Rivers Young Champions Cheer team, said its 21-person Division 4 team took first place in the national championship round Saturday.

Meanwhile, its 27-member Division 5 team took second place in the nation. The age range between the two teams is 8 through 16 years.

Goodall said the feat marked the first time both divisions qualified for Cheer Nationals.
