The Mountain View City Council will be recognizing the Mountain View Marauders Jr. Pee Wee Cheerleaders for their national victory on March 24. The team, composed of girls ages 8 to 11, beat 16 other teams from all over the country to win first place at the Pop Warner National Cheer Championships at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Disney World in Florida.
According to a press release from the team, most of the members were first-time cheerleaders and had never competed on a national level before. This marks the second national title for the Mountain View Marauders; their first national championship win was in 2006.
The Mountain View Marauders is the local extension of the Pop Warner Little Scholars Football and Cheerleading organization. The Marauders have had youth participants from Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Palo Alto and the surrounding communities since 1966.
