ORLANDO, Florida (HawaiiNewsNow) -

An all-star cheer team from Honolulu is national champions after winning first place at The Summit competition in Florida over the weekend. 

The Island Elite Steel Tide took home gold in the national competition, beating out some 27 teams.

The all-girl Hawaii team survived two days of competition in the D2 Level Four category.

Teams earn points for tumbling, stunting and dancing skills in a two-and-a-half minute, action packed routine. 

"This was such a team effort," they posted to their Instagram page following the win. "We extend a humble and appreciative mahalo."  

This team is the latest Hawaii all-star squad to win gold on a national stage. 

In early May, Hawaii All-Stars from Maui won first place in the small senior level four category at The Summit, held a week earlier.
