The Briar Woods Falcons won their third consecutive Virginia AA state competitive cheer championship Nov. 12 at the Siegel Center in Richmond. Briar Woods became the first program in Virginia High School League history to win the state title in the same classification for three straight years.

Stone Bridge won three consecutive state cheer championships from 2004 through 2006, the first in Group AA and the next two in AAA.

The Falcons - also Dulles District and Region II champions this fall - scored 259 points on their championship performance Saturday.

Loudoun County placed ninth in the AA standings, and Stone Bridge - making its 10th straight appearance at states - finished eighth in the AAA competition.

What an accomplishment!  You should all be so proud! Congratulation to BW team and their coaches.

whoops, btw, Congrats to Briar Woods. They looked awesome and were very classy all the way around

I also believe that the William Byrd terriers may have won it three years in a row in AA.  The records on VHSL don’t go back, but they were a real powerhouse and won multiple years in a row.

Thanks Jellis. I did not catch that when I was looking over the VHSL record book online. Will change that in story.

Actually, this is incorrect. Stone Bridge High School won it three years in a row—two years at AA and the next year when the school moved to AAA.  Though it was a move to a higher division, it was still three years in a row for Stone Bridge

Congrats BW Cheer!!!!!  I’m so happy for you all!
