Varsity brings home their third title in three years.

The varsity team was able to three-peat as state champion.

The senior leadership on the team was the crux of their ability to continue their success at state, according to Niceville High School Principal Charlie Morello, a speaker at the event. “There is a group of seniors that have done things that no one else has done,” Marello said, “[The Niceville Cheer Team] does not name captains, because all of the seniors are captains.”

The squad’s underclassmen will now carry the mantle for NHS cheer forward. “We start back at it in six weeks,” said coach Tanya Herndon.

“It’s about putting in hard work and determination. That is what makes you a champion,” said Superintendent Chambers, “We are extremely proud of you.”
