Novinger cheer squad heads to Moberly Thursday for a regional cheer competition.
The Missouri Chair Coaches Association competition begins at 6:30 p.m.
The competition is the gateway to the state competition in Columbia.
Putnam County and Macon R-1 will also participate in the regional competition Thursday.
The top five winners will advance to state in October.
??Our main thing is getting to state. We want to make it to state more than anything. Since nobody in Novinger history has ever taken a competition check squad, making it to state is our number one priority. Everybody wants to get first, so we strive to do our best and hope we can get up there,?? said cheer captain Colton Moots.
The competition is divided into 5-A groups.
There is also a co-ed and super-large competition.
Novinger would like to give special thanks to their choreographer, Ashlynn Newman.
