With a crowd-pleasing performance featuring two musical segments and a seemingly nonstop barrage of stunts and tumbles, the Briar Woods Falcons won the Loudoun County Public Schools Cheer Championship Oct. 7 for the first time in the event's three-year history.

Fellow Ashburn schools Stone Bridge (second place) and Broad Run (fourth) also fared well, while host Rock Ridge placed in the upper half with the seventh slot.

Tuscarora took third, pulling off an action-packed routine of its own. The Huskies niftily incorporated the iconic refrain from Queen's rock anthem "We Will Rock You" into their chant sequence.

Riverside, a program and school in its first year, placed fifth.

The event included the varsity cheer squads from 14 of Loudoun's 15 public high schools. Woodgrove was the only local team not in attendance.
