UPDATE: Navarro College Cheerleaders in first place after preliminaries

Corsicana — Looking to make it six national titles in a row, the Navarro College Bulldog Cheerleaders are in first place after preliminary competition at the National Cheer Association's National Championships in Daytona Beach, Fla.

“We are really excited to be in first place after the preliminary competition,” said Monica Aldama, coach of the cheerleaders. “We had a couple of bobbles today, and we have the ability to perform even better tomorrow.”

The Bulldogs squad scored 97.50 points to take the top spot in the Junior College Division after the preliminary round. Second place went to Trinity Valley Community College in Athens, with a score of 95.60. They were followed by Weatherford College in third place with 90.18; Mt. San Antonio College of Walnut, Ca. with 87.48; and Iowa Central Community College of Fort Dodge, who scored 81.00.

The finals of the Junior College Division will be held Friday at the venue in Daytona Beach.

Friday's championship round has two goals — to win not only the Junior College Division, but for the third straight year capture the overall championship of the competition, including the large schools.

We have a very high score today even with it not being our best performances, so we are excited to see what tomorrow brings,” Aldama said.

This year, Navarro College also has a stunt team competing in a separate division. They'll perform on Saturday.
