The Carterville High School cheerleading team was the only team from Williamson County to make the IHSA state finals in 2018, and they cheered their hearts out in Bloomington on Feb. 2.

The team performed well in the state final preliminaries, but did not finish in the top 10 of the Small School division, and therefore did not compete in the finals the next day.
