Trio of Christian Heritage cheer teams win national championships, two more are runners-up

Jan. 18—Cheerleading teams from Christian Heritage School took home national championships in three different age groups at the Fellowship of Christian Cheerleaders National Christian Cheerleading Championships, while two other age groups finished in second place in their division.

The Christian Heritage School tinys squad, cubs squad and gold squad all brought home national championships from their division at the event in Orlando, Florida, earlier this month. The middle school team and the high school team both finished as runners-up.

The FCC national championships bring together thousands of cheer squads from across the country to compete for national championships.

The gold squad, which competed in the youth sapphire division made up of kids 12 and under, marked its third consecutive national championship season, also winning at the event in 2022 and 2023. The gold team finished up a flawless season, capturing first place in each event the team competed in. A CHS squad competed in and won the tiny sapphire division, made up of kids aged seven and younger, while another won the pee wee sapphire division national championship, an age group for kids aged five and under.

The middle school team, which won the national title last year, took home second in the middle school division and third in advanced junior varsity division. The high school team, also a 2023 national champion, took second place in the 2024 event.
