It never gets old.

For the third straight season and ninth time since competitive cheerleading became an official IHSA sport in the 2005-2006 season, the Lockport Township cheer team is a sectional champion. 

The Porters easily outdistanced the competition in capturing the co-ed division on Saturday, Feb. 1, in the Joliet Central Sectional. They will compete in the state finals for the 15th straight season this Friday, Feb. 7, and, if they advance out of that day, Saturday, Feb. 8.
