On Saturday, February 9, 2013, the Summit Hill Junior High Cheerleaders took top honors at the ICCA State Championships held in Springfield. Taking the state championiship was a goal that the team set for themselves in the beginning of the year and through hard work and dedication they achieved their goal.
