    As the Grant County High School varsity cheerleaders left for Bowling Green on Feb. 13, they each tapped a sign that said, ‘Perform Like Champions.’

    They had hopes of finishing in the top 10, dreaming that they could possibly finish in the top 5.

    When the time came to perform, they didn’t live up to their own expectations, dropping four stunts and finishing 13th. But, according to coach Leigh Simpson, their performance was unexpected after how they had been performing recently.
