Spirit Cheer Super Nationals 2023

Spirit Cheer Super Nationals marked the first Cheerleading Worlds bid competition of 2023. 17 Northeast teams took the mat in hopes of taking home an at-large or paid bid to Worlds. We saw debut performances from East Celebrity Elite, and they showed UP! Both Bomb Squad and Bombshells had back-to-back zero-deduction routines that were so much fun to watch.

 

Medium Senior 6 has had a strong showing across the board this season, and Bombshells entered the chat with BANG. We cannot wait to watch them go head-to-head with the rest of their division.

 

Other standout routines included Upper Merion All Stars Royals, who also had back-to-back zero deduction routines. Power Athletics Maryland BLACKOUT’s energy was contagious, and they are going to be a team to watch for the rest of the season.
