The O. Henry Middle School 8th grade cheerleaders took First Place at the Universal Cheerleaders Association Southwest Regional on Saturday, November 19.

The team, led by Captains Kensley Miller and Lauren Santos and coached by Michael Shackelford, beat out middle school teams from across Texas to clinch the victory in the Junior High Game Day division. Because of their outstanding performance at the competition, the team has been invited to compete at the National High School Cheerleading Championship at Disney World in February!

The team is looking forward to perfecting their routines to hopefully bring home a National Championship. If you would like to help support the team as they travel to Nationals, please contact Coach Shack at michael.shackelford@austinisd.org.
