Perry County Central To Return To UCA Smoky Mountain

The UCA Smoky Mountain Championship is this weekend in Sevierville, Tennessee, and the Perry County Central High School cheerleaders are returning to compete for the first time since 2013.

For the past five years, the Commodores have attended the UCA Bluegrass Championship in Kentucky, where they have continued to be a strong contender in the Small Varsity division. 

A lot has changed for this team since they last took the mat in Tennessee. 

Since placing third in their division at the UCA Smoky Mountain Championship in 2013, PCCHS has won four World School Cheerleading Champion titles, advanced straight to Finals and claimed as high as second place at the UCA National School Cheerleading Championship, and most recently earned first place in Medium Varsity at KHSSA Regionals.

This year, Perry County is making another big change: They have moved divisions! 

For the first time since 2011, the Commodores are set to compete in the Medium Varsity division!

“We are excited to be in a new division this year,” said head coach Kim Chaney. “Our team is looking forward to seeing all the teams in this level of competition and the difference in this division versus small.”

Perry County Central is led by nine returners from the previous season, and they’re joined by seven first-year athletes.

“They are on a mission! They have a desire and hunger to be better than ever.”

The Commodores decided to return to Smoky Mountain this year for the opportunity to compete against other teams they do not usually see until they are in Florida for NHSCC. 

Chaney told Varsity TV that her team is taking on their new division with a completely new look. We can expect to see PCCHS execute new release skills, transitions, a visual pyramid, and include more spinning skills than ever before! 

The Hazard, Kentucky, team has set a goal for UCA Smoky Mountain, and it’s all about hitting a clean routine. Chaney wants her athletes to focus on being clean and solid in their stunts, and she hopes they will walk off the floor with zero deductions.
