If everything goes in the Bulldogs' favor, it'll be Navarro's 15th national championship -- and its third since 2018.
Of course, the Navarro cheer team blew up on the scene following the premiere of the docuseries, "Cheer," in early 2020 ... which followed their quest for a 14th championship in 2019.
Navarro's hopes of defending their title in 2020 were derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic ... but despite a year off, there was no rust detected!!!
The team was once again led by coach Monica Aldama and returning star Gabi Butler, who was prominently featured on the show.
Will a trophy-wielding sprint into the ocean be on the horizon?? Awards will be announced in just a few hours.
Stay tuned ...
