In case the impossible stretches, cartwheeling little sisters and bored little brothers didn't make it obvious, the "Please Apply Body Glitter Outside" signs inside the convention center hammered it home: Chattanooga was Cheeranooga on Saturday.

About 3,800 young cheerleaders representing 93 teams from across the South rolled, flipped and yelled their way into Chattanooga on Friday to prepare for one of the biggest cheerleading competitions of the year.

There will be a lot of spirit in Chattanooga this weekend when more than 14,000 competitors and spectators come to town for the Athletic Championships' two-day national cheer and dance competition at the Chattanooga Convention Center.

Two hundred teams of glittered, pony-tailed cheerleaders and dancers from across the Southeast are setting their sights on championship titles to be awarded Saturday and Sunday at the Athletic National Championships cheer and dance competition at Chattanooga Convention Center.
