CHEERLEADING SQUADS from across the island created an intense but enjoyable atmosphere at the Wildey Gymnasium last Saturday when they competed in the 2011 National Cheerleading Championship.
Cheerleaders from ten squads who competed in five divisions tumbled, danced and jumped through three-minute routines as they delivered their best.
But when the judges from the international Cheerleading Federation calculated, history was created when the three teams which placed first in their respective divisions last year, regained their titles.
Belmont Primary, Garrison Secondary and Trident Elite Senior teams all placed first in their divisions once again.
Trident Elite Seniors were the only competitors in their division, but that did not stop them from bringing a fresh routine, which sent the crowd wild.   
The team, made up of mostly dancers, set the bar high for any team which anticipates going against them next year.
The Garrison declared their intention to take back the title from the time they landed. Their high somersaults, stunts and dance routines brought the crowd to its feet.
The team from Belmont Primary are now known as the best primary school cheerleaders in Barbados, after winning the championship twice and the National Sports Council’s cheerleading competition four times.
The championship also included a Passa-Passa Cheer-Dance Division which was won by Mystery Life Dancers.
