Webster's Competitive Cheerleading squad competed for the third time at Cheer Ltd. Nationals at CANAM in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. 

The squad finished with a third place national ranking, scoring almost 18 points higher than the year before with only a quarter of a point of a deduction. Webster was one of six teams at this national competition in the Division III Open Coed category. 

Members of the squad practice months and months for this National competition where they only have one chance to be perfect when they perform their two-minute and 30-second national routine.
