The Hagerstown Heat All Stars Competitive Cheer and Dance team took six cheer teams and one dance team to the American Cheer and Dance Academy's Reach the Beach Nationals in Ocean City, Md., April 4 and 5.
They returned with two national championships.
The first came in the senior open prop dance division. The second was earned by Energy, its small mini-level 3 cheer team.
The other five teams scored well and were only separated by slim points from the top spot. Those teams were Solar, small tiny level 1; Sizzle, small youth level 2; Eclipse, small junior level 4; Fire, small senior open level 4; and X-Plosion (last year's national champion), small senior level 5.
The Heat All Stars are comprised of 55 athletes and 19 coaches. The cheer team ranges in age from 2 to 18. The staff is certified by the American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Administrators and are members of the United States All Star Federation.
