The Buford High School cheer squad didn’t bring home the gold, but Jackets’ coach Julie Thompson was still proud of the BHS effort in the Class AA state cheer finals.
Buford, with 199 points, placed 10th in the 13-team field.
“To be in the state’s top 10 in any high school sport is what you shoot for,” Thompson said. “We beat three Class AA schools to finish No. 10 at the state, so we have to be happy about that. Naturally, you want to be No. 1, but there’s a lot of teams who would like to be where we finished this season.”
