Goodrich Cheer Coach Jaime Jakubowski said her team is ready for the regional competition.
"We're a small team—yet we persevere," said Jakubowski. "But these girls are very talented—they have the desire to win. They go out each day and put it all out there on the floor. Our practices are intense and like mini-competitions. "The parents and all the coaches have been great in making this season a success."
Today's competition at Yale High School will include: Columbia Central, Corunna, Croswell - Lexington, Freeland, Goodrich, Grosse Ile, Lansing Catholic, Monroe Jefferson, Ovid Elsie, Pontiac Notre Dame Prep and Richmond.
