The Worlds teams came to Calgary ready to lay down their best routines and vie for the single Full Paid bid to The Cheerleading Worlds 2020. The competition was fierce, but one team took a commanding lead after Day 1 and didn’t back down at all on Day 2.
The Perfect Storm Athletics Supercells nailed it two days in a row, hitting zero-deductions routines in both efforts. They had the top score for all of the Worlds teams and added their name to a very small list of Non-Tumbling teams who have claimed a Paid Bid this season.
The Supercells opened their routine with solid coed stunts and well-executed jumps. After a moment of fake-out where they looked like they were about to tumble, they entered their first stunt sequence seamlessly with some dazzling flipping rippled transitions. They worked through their stunts with ease, finishing with a connected pyramid structure and dismount. After another set of jumps, the fabulous stunt transitions were back again, wowing everyone in the arena.
They moved confidently through their stunts with no mistakes and culminated the sequence with high-flying baskets. To finish, they displayed an impressive pyramid full of exciting inversions and unique structures. They sealed the Paid Bid performance with an energetic and clean dance that propelled them to the top World's score of the weekend.
There were also four At-Large bids on the line this weekend, and they went home with three different programs.
In the Level 5 International Open Non-Tumbling division, Rebels Cheerleading Athletics Classix took home the second bid for the program.
The final At-Large bid went home with Central Cheer Queen Katz in the Level 7 International Open division.
Congratulations to all of the teams that took home bids to The Cheerleading Worlds 2020. We can’t wait to see you all in Orlando!
