Three teams from Benton’s MatPack Allstars were scheduled to compete at The One Cheer Finals in Orlando, Florida, on May 1-2. Two of the three teams received a paid bid to the competition.
Results were not available by the Tribune-Courier deadline Monday.
Teams that advanced to The One are Wolf Pups (ages 5-8) with a paid bid, Unleashed (ages 6-12) with a first place gold bid and Alpha Wolves (ages 7-16) with a paid bid. The Wolf Pups are two time Grand Champions for the 2020-2021 season.
“After months of disappointment and heartbreak when everything was shut down last year and our season came to an end, we just took this year one competition at a time. We had no idea what to expect. All our kids wanted to do was take the floor. With each competition they blew us away more and more,” said Mallory Carnes, owner of The Mat.
MatPack Allstars are entering their fifth season for 2021-22 and team placements will begin on May 22. For more information about The Mat and MatPack Allstars cheerleading, visit The Mat on Facebook or www.thematgym.com.
