Spanish Fork High School cheerleaders came home from California with a 3rd place finish in their national competition. 

"We competed on Saturday and then the top 35% competed again on Sunday in the finals," said junior cheerleader Kourtney Beus.

Between the rounds of competition, a Spanish Fork cheerleader suffered an injury, but the team worked together to make adjustments that still allowed them to meet their goals for the competition.

"We reworked our routine on Sunday morning and had just enough time to get ready for the competition," said Beus.
