The Greendale High School cheer team competed in the National High  
School Cheerleading Championship in Orlando, joining more than 450 teams at the two day event Feb. 9-10.

Greendale finished fourth in the Super Large Varsity division, which is a division for teams with 20 to 30 members. Teams performed skills of stunting,  
tumbling, jumping, pyramids, dance and crowd-leading in a  
choreographed 2.5-minute routine.

The Greendale girls made it through Saturday's preliminaries in seventh before elevating to fourth in the finals.

In addition to competing, Greendale organized a practice for all Wisconsin teams
Friday, Feb 8. The eight teams representing Wisconsin got together for a final practice and run through of their routines.

Teams first had to qualify for Nationals at regional competitions held throughout the country last fall. The best teams were then invited to compete at Nationals, where teams from 40 states and 15 countries competed in various divisions in the largest cheer competition in the world.

Winning teams will be showcased on ESPN later this spring.

This is the fifth straight Greendale team to make it into the national finals.
