Lutheran cheer brings home its first state title

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- A year after not winning a state trophy, Lutheran cheer had one goal on its mind heading into this weekend, winning the whole thing.

With a strong routine in hand, the Lady Crusaders knew they had a chance to do just that.

Coach Billie Makeever said she knew the girls had it won once they got off the floor, and the results did not lie.

Lutheran is your 2018 state champions in the small team division.

Friends and family greeted the team back at the school with a fire truck escort and fireworks. The team watched back its winning performance on the projector, a performance they'll never forget.
