The Dawson County High School Competition Cheerleaders are on a roll.

The team finished in first place during a competition at Woodstock High School on Oct. 18. With the win the team has a 4-0 record for the season.

Neighboring Lumpkin County finished in second place.

According to head coach Kim Fleming, the team's routine was not perfect on Saturday. However, due to the squad's level of difficulty in their stunting sequence, the team was able to come away with the victory.

"We have continued to add difficulty to our routine to secure higher scores in difficulty on the rubric as the season has progressed. By adding new skills throughout the season, we have continued to bring our scores up. I was pleased with the girls' performance..., but as their coach I know we have not peaked yet. I am hoping we peak at the right time - region and state," Fleming said.

The squad will compete next on Nov. 1 at Chestatee High School. Competition is set to begin at 10 a.m.

The team will compete against Calhoun, Hart County, Lumpkin County, East Jackson and Oconee.

Region competition will be held Nov. 8 at Dawson County High School.
