The Carterville High School Competitive Cheer Team competed at the Edwardsville IHSA Sectional on Saturday.

With a performance time of 6:14 pm, the Lions were competing in a division with sixteen teams. The top five in their division would advance to State next weekend.

With the third place finish, the Lions will be heading to state for the fourth consecutive year and their eighth overall appearance at state. The IHSA has only had a competitive cheer competition for the past fourteen years.
