Cheerleaders are just champion

Hipperholme Thunders stormed to the national title at the BCA National Schools Cheerleading Competition.

The Hipperholme and Lightcliffe High School students took the crown at the Telford International Centre last month.

Coach Katie Beaumont said: “They have worked so hard all year, I am proud to be called their coach.”

Fellow coach Olivia Hodges said: “I am so proud of all of them, most of them have come from having no background in cheerleading to national champions in just under a year.”
