Polk cheerleaders place second at Carolina Regional

Polk County’s competitive cheerleading team placed second Saturday at the Universal Cheerleaders Association Carolina Regional in Greesnboro.

Polk County’s score at the meet also qualified the Wolverines for the 2021 UCA National High School Cheerleading Championship, set for Feb. 11-13 at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.

It marked the second runner-up finish this fall for Polk County, which also placed second at the recent Piedmont Regional in Kannapolis.

“We did really well. I’m very proud of them,” said Polk cheer coach Elisa Flynn.
