Santa Barbara High Competitive Cheer Team Places Fifth at Nationals

ANAHEIM — The Santa Barbara High School Competitive Cheer Team is back-to-back national champions in the Super Varsity Show Cheer Novice Division, for 2012 and 2013. This year, however, the team opted to challenge themselves and compete in the more difficult Intermediate Division at the annual USA Nationals Spirit Competition at the Anaheim Convention Center over the weekend.

This is the first time for the team to compete at this level in nationals, and the goal was to advance to the finals, which they knew would be tough.

The team not only met their goal, they surpassed it by placing fifth overall in a field of 18 teams.

It is an amazing accomplishment for the team to place fifth at the Intermediate Division the first time out.

Looking forward, the SBHS Comp Cheer Team plans to continue their legacy of being a formidable force in competitive cheer.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
