Pennsbury's high school cheerleading team earned the Grand Champion title last weekend during the 2013 Battle at the Capitol National Cheerleading competition in Fairfax, Va.
The squad overcame second place Mechanicsburg, Pa.'s Cumberland Valley High School by less than four-tenths of a point to win the title. The junior varsity team also scored a first place finish in the Advanced Junior Varsity Cheer Division. The squads are coach by the husband and wife team of Nicole and Mike Roberts, both teachers at Pennsbury High School.
As an added bonus, Pennsbury also earned the Best Fans award in recognition of the sportsmanship behaviors and attitudes of the teams supporters.
