Glen Rose was the camp's national championship bid winner for exemplifying the best technical skill and cheerleading technique. The bid means they are extended an invitation to compete at the NCA Senior and Junior High School National Championship in Dallas. GRHS was also awarded for top team performance.
All members of the varsity and JV squads were nominated for the All-American team, and Katie Betsill, Taylor Bryant, Jessie Calkins and Jaylan Dillard, Payton Downing, Macy Reynolds, Taylor Rhodes and Britton Sanderson from the varsity squad were selected to the team.
