Chicopee cheerleading team advances to nationals

Hampden County

A local cheerleading team has advanced to a national competition.

The Chicopee Braves Junior Varsity Cheerleaders competed at the New England Pop Warner Regional Competition Saturday.

The team placed second and qualified for the Pop Warner National Cheer and Dance Competition at Disney World in Orlando, Florida which takes place the first week of December. 

This is the first time in Chicopee Braves history that a team has advanced to nationals. The team is raising money to cover travel and lodging for their athletes and coaches.
