Precision Cheer hip-hop team earns bid to worlds event

Medford Precision Cheer Academy's senior hip-hop team received a bid to attend the 2014 Dance World's Competition in Florida following a performance at the PacWest National Competition last weekend.

The team is in only its second year, and according to a release is only the second Oregon team to receive such a bid.

Precision's youth hip-hop team also fared well at the PacWest, winning the variety division title. The cheer program's youth Level 1 team placed second, senior co-ed 4.2 was third, junior Level 2 was fourth and senior all-girl Level 2 was fifth.

The team must raise about $20,000 for the Florida trip in May. Donations can be made at www.youcaring.com by searching for "Precision Cheer Academy."
