RALEIGH-- The fifth annual North Carolina High School Athletic Association state invitational cheerleading championships are scheduled for Reynolds Coliseum on the North Carolina State University campus on Saturday.
A record number of over 100 teams have registered for the event.
Competition will be held in 10 different categories. The doors open at 7:30 am and competition will begin at nine o’clock Saturday morning.
The Carolina Cup will also be awarded during the course of competition. Cheer Ltd., Inc., one of the NCHSAA’s corporate partners that assists with the invitational championship, established the Carolina Cup to recognize annually the top high school varsity cheerleading team in the state. The team that earns the highest cumulative score among varsity teams during the invitational championship earns the Cup. North Gaston won it last year and Raleigh Sanderson took the Cup in its inaugural year in 2005.
Lake Norman is the only school to have won top honors in a division in each of the previous years of the invitational championships.
