Southern Columbia's Competitive Cheer Team, coached by Kenda Roth, will be headed to Hershey's Giant Center, January 19-20, to compete in the PIAA Compeititve Spirit Championship. The squad earned the right to compete in the Small Varsity Division Championship (teams with 15 or fewer cheerleaders), after capturing that division's District IV title. Southern's squad turned in a commanding performance, earning the highest score of all teams competing, including those in the Large, Medium, and Co-Ed Varsity divisions. Competitive Cheerleading has been recognized as a PIAA sport since 2012. While practice is a year-long effort, its defined regular season begins with the start of fall sports and concludes at the end of the winter sports season. Squads have 2 1/2  minutes to perform a cheer and a music routine. Three judges calculate a final score based on difficultly and execution.Congratulations are extended to SCA's spirit team on their success and best wishes for continued excellence at States!
