    Oh, what a ride.
    The New Washington High School cheerleaders have enjoyed an amazing ride the last two seasons with their 2008 season ending with the ultimate, magical moment- being named State Champions.
    The Mustang Cheerleaders set a goal, a lofty goal, one that had never been accomplished before for a team from New Washington. Their goal was to bring back a state championship title to the small town.
    The squad competed on November 8 in the Indiana Cheerleading Championships sponsored by the Indiana Association of School Principals. The competition is the only opportunity for a high school cheer squad to win a regional or state title and is equivalent to the basketball programs sectional, regional, etc.
    The squad’s hard work and dedication paid off as they now have the memories of being on a state championship squad.
