National Champion Pop Warner Cheerleaders Honored by Braintree Officials

Competing against 11 other teams from around the country in the Midget Cheer Level 2 Medium division, the Wamps scored 89.98 percent.

Mayor Joseph Sullivan set high expectations for the Braintree Pop Warner A Team Cheerleaders Tuesday night.

"Next year you've got to do it all over again," he said.

Sullivan, of course, was talking about the squad's national championship victory in Florida last month, in which Braintree toppled 11 other teams in the Midget Cheer Level 2 Medium division.

"Braintree's proud of you," the mayor said during a celebration at Town Hall prior to the Town Council meeting. He gave commendations to the cheerleaders and encouraged them to stay focused on academics and listen to their parents.

The cheerleaders received the highest score out of 65 teams in addition to their division win, coach Kelly Fichtner said, including versus higher level teams. They were also 5th out of more than 400 teams and scored the second highest for the week in choreography.

"Being part of their success is a memory that will last a lifetime," Fichtner told town councilors.

"Cherish it. Honor it. And thank the people that got you there," Councilor Paul "Dan" Clifford said.

What an amazing and wonderful experience for these girls. Not only placed first in The Hockomock League, placed first in the Qualifiers, then placed first in the Regionals and topped it off with first place in the Nationals. Highest score out of 65 teams in their league, 5th out of over 400 teams for the week and 2nd highest score in choreography at Nationals. This is not an easy thing. We are so proud of these girls. This is a memory they will carry with them the rest of their lives. Paula Doroni
