ROSEVILLE (CBS13) – A local cheer team is celebrating a national championship. CBS13 went to Woodcreek High School in Roseville where cheerleaders showed off their stunting secrets.
Practicing for more than a year, the cheerleaders needed time to get to where they are now.
“It was really hard to get certain tricks and we had to just work really hard,” said senior Katelynn Camacho.
It started coming together last summer when it was obvious they worked well as a team
“We started doing it for fun and then started a stunt team because we were working so well together,” said Camacho.
The “fab five,” as they refer to themselves, took home first place out of 47 teams at nationals in Anaheim.
“We were bawling. We were so excited,” said team member Katelynn.
They say they were ecstatic to place first, but the competition had an even bigger meaning
“It was bittersweet because we had an amazing year together,” said senior Claire Hawkins.
The fab five was the only team from Woodcreek High school to go to nationals. But they weren’t the only team in the area to go. Several teams from the Sacramento region also competed in the national championships two weekends ago.
