The Highlands Cheerleading squad took first and second place in the Cats Cheer Cup on Saturday, hosted by Pendleton Co. It was the 2nd competition of the season for the high school squad.
They came in first with a score of 205 beating the next team by 40 points.
"I was really happy with how they performed," said Highlands Coach, Carly Leopold. "We had a very shaky warmup and they were able to put their nerves aside and hit their stunts. We still have some things we need to work on but overall we improved from the last time we competed."
The middle school also competed for the first time this season. They placed second to Campbell County.
Leopold said that it was good for them to get out there and perform it before their next competition.
The next competition for both teams is the Northern Kentucky Cheer Coaches Association competition on January 30 at BB&T Arena on the campus of Northern Kentucky University.
