ORANGETOWN, N.Y. -- After months of practicing, the Orangetown Patriot Cheerleaders accomplished their goal by coming in first place during the Pop Warner Pee Wee Cheerleading Championship on Tuesday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando.

The seven top Junior Pee Wee teams from around the country advanced to nationals and the Orangetown Patriots placed first in the national finals . In addition, the team won the highest stunt score of the day out of all age groups around the country, said Coach Karen Paletta.

"Their performance of 2:30 was their best ever and the coaches and girls felt great about their effort," Paletta said. "However, there were several other very impressive teams so the result of the scores and place was uncertain until the awards ceremony."

The 31 athletes on the team, family and friends were thrilled and still enjoying their title of National Champions, she added.
