ARLINGTON -- The Shiner High School varsity cheerleading squad competed at the first-ever Texas UIL State Spirit Championship held at the University of Texas at Arlington on January 14, 2016. They competed in three one-minute preliminary events with 25 other 2A Division High School squads from across the state.

After earning fourth place in both the band dance and the crowd leading cheer and fifth in the fight song, the squad earned third place overall in the preliminary rankings.

The girls competed in the finals at 7:33 that evening, combining all three preliminary events into a three-minute performance. In the middle of this final performance, the squad had to respond to a specific game-day situation, and for Shiner it was, "First and ten, Comanches!" The cheerleaders responded with spirit and confidence and led the crowd in their best offensive cheer.

The squad was awarded a UIL bronze medal and a semi-finalist plaque for their spirit-filled and well-executed performance. The girls not only made history by participating in the first-ever UIL Spirit State Championship, but they represented Shiner with class and spirit as they earned the bronze.
