The Union-Endicott cheerleaders took to the road and took it to the competition. Last weekend, the U-E Varsity cheerleaders went to the warm weather in Orlando, Florida. They weren't lounging in the sun because they were too busy kicking derrière at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Cheerleaders from all over the country come and compete in the preliminaries, semifinals, and then the finals. After all, was said and done, the Union-Endicott cheerleaders finished third in the Universal Cheerleaders Association competition.

Their overall score was 93.5 out of 100, finishing less than a point (94.1) behind the overall winner. They returned home to a hero's welcome that could compare to a Cincinnati Bengals Super Bowl celebration.

The team is already looking forward to competing next year. I'll echo the words of the many fans that welcomed the team home last night...WELL DONE TIGERS!!!
