The Cedartown Lady Bulldogs have to be perfect just one more time this season, and they’ll have a real shot at a second year of winning state gold.

Lady Bulldogs competition cheerleaders took first place at their region competition over the weekend, continuing their undefeated streak and will get to skip the first of a two-day state championship event this weekend with a trip back down to the Columbus Civic Center.

“The squad performed an almost flawless routine today at Columbus,” Tillery said after the squad performed Saturday, Nov. 4. “They earned the highest score of the year, reaching their weekly goal.”

Tillery said the squad had a challenging warm-up, but “they stepped on to the floor with confidence and nailed their routine.”

Chapel Hill has been slightly trailing us all year in scores, and they performed before us today and they put a great performance in the floor, so we knew we had to put our best skills forward,

“ she said. “The team did just that, performing beautifully. Jennifer (Ruff) and I️ are very proud of this squad for Thor tremendous work ethics and skills.”

Earlier in the week, the Lady Bulldogs showed off their routine during an exhibition session for the community, and Tillery said then that they had what it took to win again, if they continued to work hard.

On Thursday, the Lady Bulldogs will offer up a chance for the community to come see their routine free of charge for the second week in a row. Those interested can gather before they start at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 9 in the girl's field house at Cedartown High School.

Fans will get to see Cedartown in one last performance for the year at 9 a.m. in Columbus for the competition cheer season, with the hopes of bringing back a state title once again. Winners will be announced later in the afternoon, and the GHSA partners with GPB to film performances that are later aired on television.
