MYRTLE BEACH – The Level Five and Six TC Elite Cheer team went to Myrtle Beach two weeks ago and returned to Traverse City with the National title.
The team, made up of eight to 18-year-olds, spent several days in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for the NYAA Nationals. The group performed perfect routines during the two days of the competition, which earned them the number one spot.
“The first day we were in first place,” said TC Cheerleader Adalee Butrick. “The second day we did really well again, so we just knew we were first.”
The team won the national title after four years at the national level, finishing only in second place.
A majority of cheerleaders will return to the team in hopes of winning another national title. One of them, Julie Roland, reflected on her journey with TC Elite Cheer and will coach the next group of cheerleaders.
“We’ve been working for the title for four years,” Roland said. “It was all worth [the] literal blood, sweat and tears.
