Last Thursday, my cheerleading squad set sail for the annual National High School Cheerleading Championship held in Didney World. We've been working since this past summer to get a routine and compete locally, all leading up to this. It's my senior year, along with 5 other girls, so it was a really exciting thing, but also really sad. On Thursday night, we went to a luau. There was a bunch of Hawaiin dancers to perform for us while we ate their amazing food. Everything they served had some kind of pineapple sauce or flavor to it, which was different than what we normally ate- but so delicious.
On Friday, we woke up at 6:00 to go to practice. After that, we spent the rest of the day laying out at the pool and then visited the new castle in Magic Kingdom. The next two days were it- the championships. Saturday morning we went to prelimary rounds, and thankfull made it to the next round. Semi finals were later that night, which made the day go by really far. When they came to announce who was going to finals, they announced us last, so we all thought that we weren't going. It was probably the worst, but best, moment of my life.
On Sunday morning, we performed at a new championship called World Cheer. It's basically the same thing, except teams from China and Canada come to compete against you as well. By only .4 points, we came in second place. It was an amazing feeling. At 6:30 that night, we performed at finals. We got 9th in the nation, which is what we got last year as well. It was such a happy day for me and my squad and I'm really glad my senior year went the way it did with cheerleading.
