The World Series of Cheerleading came to Broken Arrow on Saturday. News On 6â€™s Latoya Silmon reports that as many Oklahomans gets ready to cheer on the Sooners, some have other reasons to cheer. Broken Arrow High hosts the cheerleading competition every year. It's a regional competition, preparing squads for nationals in February.
And, there's cash on the line.
Teams are scored at each competition, then at the end of the season $15,000 dollars is awarded. Broken Arrow's team took home some of last year's pot. And, teams are excited again this year. But, the kids aren't the only ones.
"Cheerleading is a big family event,â€ said Promotion Director Danny Boze. â€œIf you'll notice all the parents out there with all the signs and horns and bell and whistles, you'll see dads dressed up in crazy costumes. It's just a big family fun event and that's what Cheer Power tries to promote.â€
Besides a great family event, Cheer Power says it provides a big boost to the local economy.
