Midwest Training and Ice Center’s cheerleading program, Midwest Elite, huddled around a tv in the gym’s upper seating area on Monday night. While the team bonded over ice cream sundaes, none of the athletes could take their eyes off the television screen. On it was a live stream of the national Summit Bid Reveal, and the team has had its target set on the Summit since the beginning of the season. “It’s like the Super Bowl of cheerleading,” said Midwest Cheer Director Michelle Damore. The Summit, which is held at Disney World, is a competition among the nation’s top cheerleading programs. After a night of nerves and high-tensions, cheers and hugs erupted from the team as their name was revealed on the live stream as receiving the Small Senior 4.2 Co-Ed Wild Card bid to compete at The Summit in May. “Our team motto this year has been ‘The Best is Yet to Come,’ and that motto is definitely playing out to be true for us,” said Damore. “I am so proud of our team and their work, and I can’t wait to continue this success as we move forward to The Summit.”
