Eagles Soar to Second Place at Cheerleading State Championships
February 9, 2024
The 2023-2024 Liberty High School (LHS) varsity cheerleading team capped off a successful season with a thrilling second-place finish at the Missouri Cheerleading Coaches Association (MCCA) State Championship, held on Dec. 9, at Southeast Missouri State University.
Their journey began in the Saint Louis Regional competition, where they battled against tough competition, ultimately securing a strong third place finish in their 5a Small Division, earning them a coveted spot at the state championships.
On the big day, LHS impressed the judges, clinching the runner-up title in the 5a Small Division. Their performance wasn't just about teamwork; individual talent also shone brightly, with four athletes receiving prestigious All-State Awards: Ashley Vieluf for her tumbling, Alexa Popp for her flyer skills, Addison Sheffield for her rock-solid base, and Reese Douglas for her backspot technique. These awards are a true testament to their dedication and exceptional skills, as only 3-5 athletes are chosen in each category across the entire state.
