With a first-place win in state cheer competition in December, the Highlands High School Dance Team is preparing for nationals.
The team took first place in large poms at the 2018-19 Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) cheerleading/dance competition in Lexington. The win was an exciting improvement for the team that was runner-up last year.
The team will compete in the nationally televised National High School Cheerleading Championship at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, February 8 through 10.
KHSAA is the agency designated by the Commonwealth to manage high school athletics and includes 280 schools and more than 70,000 student-athletes. The National Cheerleading Championship is the leading high school cheer competition in the country and hosts more than 800 teams with about 15,000 student athletes.
