RAW: Port Allen cheerleaders perform at Citrus Bowl

ORLANDO, FL (WAFB) - A group of cheerleaders from south Louisiana was in Orlando in New Year's Day to perform in the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl.

The 18 girls from Holy Family School in Port Allen were joined by five coaches and their families.

The girls were part of a group consisting of 630 girls invited to perform for the bowl game after multiple outstanding performances at Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) summer camp in July.

The cheerleaders practiced Tuesday and Wednesday, before performing Thursday afternoon.

They enjoyed Disney theme parks each day after practice.

We congratulate them on their great accomplishments and wish them safe travels back home.
