The Milford High School competition cheer team won its first-ever UCA National Championship on Feb. 13 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL,

The MHS squad won the Traditional Routine category and also captured a national runner-Up trophy with their Gameday Routine.

Each February, the UCA (Universal Cheerleaders Association) hosts some of the best cheer teams from around the country in multiple divisions, based on school size, tumbling/building capabilities, and team make-up (all girls/coed). Each team must compete in a sanctioned UCA Regional event to qualify for Nationals. All teams competed in both Gameday and Performance preliminaries on Saturday.

In their first performance of the day on Sunday (Championship Day), Milford garnered a zero deduction score of 97.5 in their Gameday Finals routine, only 0.2 behind reigning National Champions Springboro High School. Milford's second finals routine of the weekend was in the Performance category (better known as Traditional Routine), and the squad put in another with a zero-deduction routine and an impressive score of 94.0 to earn their first Traditional National Championship in school history.
