The Juanita High School cheerleading team will be attending the Universal Cheerleaders Association's National High School Cheerleading Championship for the second year in a row. The competition is the most prestigious cheerleading championship in the country and will be held at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. on Feb. 8-9.

The competition is televised on ESPN and ESPN2 to more than 100 million homes and 32 countries nationwide. The Juanita cheerleading program is the first in the Lake Washington School District to compete at this event. The Juanita cheerleading program also finished second at the WIAA State Cheerleading Championship in 2013.

The Juanita High School student body will hold a sendoff for the team during halftime of both the boys and girls basketball games on Jan 31 and the team will debut its new routine.
