Special cheer squad in Calif. pursues second straight title story image

IRVINE, Calif. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A special cheer squad in southern California is going for its second straight national title.

The team is made up of 14 athletes who have challenges like autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy or learning disabilities.

They cheer for Team Invincible.

Last year, the team won a national cheer championship in Palm Springs, California.

They come with positive attitudes, big smiles, and a determination to repeat as national champs.

"They give me a different outlook on life, like they can do anything, so you can do anything," said peer leader Naomi Beth. "And I've also learned that they don't have disabilities, they just have different abilities."

Team Invincible competes in 6 competitions every year.

Their next is in November.
