Barbados cheer squad wins Gold

Sixteen cheerleaders from Barbados have more than one reason to cheer and be proud.

Inclusive of two reserves and ranging in age from 10 years old to 18 years old, the team of locals went to Orlando, Florida last month to compete and they did not return empty-handed.

According to their manager, the Twisterz All-Stars Cheerleaders are the winners of the Senior Level Ones in the UCA All-Stars Competition, which took place at the ESPN World Wide of Sports Centre.

This is the Twisterz's third time in this competition. Three years ago, during their debut, they took one team which placed 11th in their division. The following year, in 2016, they took two teams - Level 1 Juniors and Level 1 Seniors, both teams placed eighth in their divisions. This year they departed Barbados with one team - Level 1 Seniors, and they won their overall division.

Additionally, the Bajan girls also won a 2018 Gold Bid Award, which is a prestigious award that qualifies the team to come back and compete in the USA Nationals. As part of their winnings, they also received UCA 2018 Champion jackets and rings.

Their Director Coach Denise Bynoe along with the team’s four Admin Assistants headed the team.
