The squad is led by head coach Lori Kilgo and assistants Kathi Shedd and Carole Payne.
Woodland competed in the Class 4A-5A division of the first-ever Game Day Invitational February 23 at Putnam County High School in Eatonton.
The preliminary round included sections of crowd-leading cheer, band chant and fight song. Five of the 11 teams advanced from the preliminary round to the finals, and scores were reset for the final round.
In the finals, a situational segment was also added, forcing the team to make a split-second decision about which cheer to do based on what an announcer called out.
Joining Woodland in the top five of the 4A-5A division were champion Denmark, Wayne County, Mary Persons and Carrollton. Morgan County won the Class A- Class 3A championship and North Gwinnett was the 6A-7A champ.
