In the past 4 season, Lexington Competitive Cheer has earned 2 state championships, 1 runner-up, and one 3rd place finish in the highly competitive 4A Division. They have quickly established themselves as on of the elite programs in all of South Carolina high school athletics.
Coach Shannon Canady and her girls are optimistic about the upcoming season as they make final preparations for the ACX Palmetto Classic on September 24, their opening competition. One week later, on October 1, Lexington will host the Wildcat Cheer Classic.
