Congratulations to the Rio Rancho High School varsity cheer squad for a third place finish in a huge national competition this past weekend!

The team had the opportunity to attend the national high school cheerleading championships in Orlando, FL. This competition is the largest and most prestigious high school cheerleading championship in the U.S.

The squad for Rio Rancho High School competed in the Large Varsity Division 1 Game Day group and ended up taking 3rd place bringing home bronze medals and a trophy. Rio Rancho High School was the only team at the competition representing New Mexico.

Way to go Rams, we are so proud of you. Congratulations on a job well done and we thank you for representing Rio Rancho and New Mexico.
