The Rush Cheer and Dance team got 2nd place at nationals in their division.
The kids on the cheer and dance team range from 7-12 years old. Three of the team members lost their homes from the slater fire. The team’s coach, Savana Oliver-Hickey, told NBC5 News she couldn’t ask for a harder working group of kids.
The team’s next competition is in two weeks in Las Vegas.
