An Inferno Burns It Down

Last weekend, we eased our way into 2024 with one Cheerleading Worlds bid competition. Spirit Cheer Super Nationals awarded two full paid and six at-large bids.

Our Four Favorite Performances 

Xtreme Cheer Inferno 

Xtreme Cheer Inferno took us by SURPRISE on day one. Inferno confidently took the stage and executed their routine to perfection. Every skill and transition left us wanting more. On day two, they delivered for a second time, increased their score, and became one of the only two Worlds teams to hit zero on both days. Congrats on our Full Paid bid to Worlds!

 

East Celebrity Elite Bombshells

The Bombshells are BACK in Small Senior 6, and we are thrilled to see it. Bombshells always have some of our favorite choreography of the season, and this routine checks all the boxes. It’s fast-paced, packed with skill, and the transitions are SMOOTH. They ended the weekend with the top Worlds division score and a Full Paid bid to Worlds. We cannot wait to see them take on The MAJORS 2024 this week. 

 

World Cup Omni

The reigning World Champs are starting 2024 with a bang. Omni performed two zero deduction routines, and they were one of two teams to hit zero on both days. On both days, their confidence was on full display. It’s two trips around the Universe – Omni rules planet Earth!  

 

South Jersey Storm Celsius

South Jersey Storm Celsius is quickly becoming one of the top teams to watch this season. After a couple of deductions on day one, Celsius bounced back on day two with a zero deduction routine that scored 97.8. Their routine flows effortlessly, and their technique is textbook. Small Coed 6 is going to be VERY interesting this season.
