Dracut High claimed the 2017 Fall State Division 3 Cheering Championship.
The Dracut High School cheerleading team marched onto the campus of Worcester State University on Sunday and marched out as 11-time State Champions.
The Middies, performing last, outclassed a talented field to claim the Division 3 State Championship. The 11th state title is added to a program resume that also includes four New England championships and National Championships in 2015 and 2017.
Not only did Dracut run away with Division 3 by more than 22 points, the Middies score of 208.8 was the highest score for any team in any of the five divisions.
Tewksbury High was a strong third in Division 3 with 184 points, earning a bid to one of the upcoming national competitions.
Greater Lowell Tech was 9th in Division 1. But the Gryphons' score of 177.1 was good enough to earn a bid to nationals.
