The York area Tri-Town cheerleading club ended its season with three teams winning championships Sunday at the Cheer and Dance Extreme Finale in Sevierville, Tenn.

Tri-Town Extreme, an 18-and-under team, was awarded recreational grand champion and finale champion. This comes at an event that included more than 100 competing cheerleading programs, including a few all-star teams — a status that requires a club to have its own gym and be certified by the U.S. All-Star Federation for Cheer and Dance Teams.

Tri-Town practices at William Penn Senior High School. It doesn’t have the resources for mats and is considered a recreational program.

Sunday’s trip back to York County marked the end of a season that began last November. The program made two similar trips to Ocean City, Md., and Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The Tri-Town Extreme is comprised of girls from William Penn, Dover, Central York, West York, Eastern York, York Catholic and Northern York. Two of Tri-Town’s younger programs, the Elite (ages 10-15) and Cyclones (6-9) squads, also won championships in their classifications.
