Moanalua Menehune cheerleaders win national title

DALLAS, TEXAS (Hawaii News Now) - The Moanalua Menehune cheerleaders are newly crowned national champions.

The Big Blue Crew came off two days of competition in Texas at the National Cheerleaders Association's National Championships with a first-place win.

Moanalua took home the prize in the Advanced Small High School division, competing with 10 girls on the mat.

Their routine was packed with acrobatic stunts, difficult tumbling and a crowd cheer.

Moanalua is the latest Hawaii team to win on the national stage.

In previous years, the powerhouse cheerleaders from Radford, and Kamehameha Maui earned the top spot in the nation at NCA. Performances by the Mililani Trojans have also earned top 5 recognition.

The menes are set to return home early this week.
