In a year when the norm is non-existant, the Mountain Valey Conference created an inovative way to hold its winter competition cheering championship. With the COVID-19 pandemic making it impossible to hold on-site live competition, each cheering team performed in their own facility with a video camera trained on the performers. They had just one take, and that video was sent to the officials to be judged.
The Monmouth Academy Mustangs come out on top in the virtual competition with a three-judge total score of 55.3. Second place went to the Lisbon Greyhounds with 42.4 points, while the Mountain Valley Falcons took the third spot with 40.9 pointes. Congratulations to al the teams and coaches for their performances and cooperation during this unprecedented format. Well done!
