Multiple Teams · State Runners-Up!

The Lady Wildcat Cheer routine always features an extremely high degree of difficulty that requires discipline and attention to detail to master.  At the state championship meet on Saturday, the girls executed it with precision.  The large crowd felt sure that another state title was on the way.  But those judging the competition saw it differently, awarding Lexington a runner-up finish among the 16 teams that were 5A qualifiers.
