FORT WORTH, Texas — Oh, how the turn tables!
The Paschal High School cheerleaders were the ones receiving celebratory cheers after winning the 2023 UIL State Spirit Championship this past weekend in Fort Worth.
The team is the first squad from Fort Worth Independent School District to win a State Spirit Championship.
"It is so special, we have been waiting for this for all four years of high school," said one cheerleader.
The girls prepare year-round and even take part in 4-hour practices in the days leading up to the competition.
WFAA was there as the school held a pep rally when the 30-plus cheerleaders received their UIL medals. Congratulations, Panthers!
