A MILNGAVIE girl is preparing to take the USA by storm when she takes part in the World Cheerleading Championships.

Rachel Kerr, a student at City of Glasgow College, and her coach and sports lecturer Roz Hart are hoping to add to their growing medal haul when their Champion Dance and Cheer team jet off stateside.

The 18-year-old, from Dunellan Road, who is currently in her first year of an HND Fitness Health course, has been in the Scotland team since she was 15.

She said: “I can’t wait to take part in the championships. I’ve competed at them before but hopefully this time we can do even better.”

Rachel will be competing in the International Pom division as part of a Scottish contingent which will travel to the competition in Disney World Florida on Sunday.

Roz said: “This is an exciting time for the club and every one of the girls. I’m sure they will all do extremely well.”
