Creekside cheer team wins state title

Creekside’s cheer team won the school’s first FHSAA competitive cheer state championship Monday night in the 1A medium division. The team had been close the past three years with a regional title and two state runners-up trophies.

“These hard-working athletes train as early as 6:30 a.m. during the school week while also cheering for football games, volunteering in their community and studying hard to keep their grades up,” said coach Laura Clary.

The next step for the Knights will be this weekend at the National High School Cheerleading Championships at the ESPN Wide World Of Sports Complex.
