The team is undefeated this season in Michigan High School Athletic Association competitive cheerleading in the Upper Peninsula and Lower Peninsula. The team’s scores are the second highest in the state for every round and season average and it has been ranked No. 1 in the state for division 4 in the past four weeks, team officials said. All team members have cheered since middle school and cheered in last year’s district champion and state finalist team, according to the team. The team has one more regular season meet in East Jordan on Wednesday, to be followed by districts in East Jordan Feb. 21, organizers said.
