Cheerleading Coach Thompson comments:
“It was a tough spot having to perform first (in the Finals),” head coach Jomo Thompson said. “But we went out and hit our routine, setting the bar high and putting the pressure on the other 14 teams after us.”
“We’re glad to bring the trophy back to Lexington,” Thompson said. “The Bluegrass is its home and we knew we had to bring it back after placing third last year.”
