THERE were no shadows cast over a major tournament when a group of Weston cheerleaders danced their way to success.
The Somerset Shadows were awarded seven trophies when they took part in the BCA Midlands Classic Cheerleading Competition.
More than 2,500 cheerleaders visited Telford for the mammoth contest, in which the 47-strong team increased its trophy toll to 67 in the space of four years.
The girls, who had new uniforms for the competition thanks to their parents, also hold the record for receiving three consecutive sportsmanship awards.
Cris Lovett, head coach, said: “An incredible amount of hard work and practice was put in by the squad members during the past few months and the results have exceeded any of our expectations.”
