Truro teams finish fifth at cheer nationals

A pair of teams from Truro All-Star Cheer and Tumble did their club proud on the weekend in Niagara Falls.

Truro Chill and Truro Heatwave each scored fifth-place finishes in their respective divisions at the Cheer Evolution National Championships. Chill was competing in the Junior Level 2 Division while Heatwave lined up in Youth Level 1. It was the first time the Hubtown club has sent any of its squads into battle at the event.

The three-day competition is one of the largest in the country with more than 360 teams and 13,000 cheerleaders vying for the top prizes in the nation.

All four of Truro's teams will be back in action Apr. 21 and 22 at the Cheer Nova Scotia Provincials at RECC.
