HEBRON, OH – The Lakewood High School Cheerleaders are performing in the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida on January 1, 2019.
They are invited to perform in the pre-game performance as a trophy winner from a National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) summer camp they attended in July 2018. They competed and won the Band Chant Division, Chant Dickson, AND the Herkie Team Award which is the most prestigious award given at camp. It is awarded to one team who exemplifies leadership, values, ability, and teamwork.
Squad members will travel as a team to Orlando for a week of rehearsals dedicated to preparing them for their Citrus Bowl pre-game performance. The cheerleaders will perform in front of 60,000 fans at this popular college football game in the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.
The Citrus Bowl has been a college football tradition since 1947. The game gives cheerleaders and dancers the opportunity to perform at the 7tholdest collegiate bowl in the country, as well as the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World® Resort.
