WARREN — After a three year absence, the Warren Woods Tower competitive cheer team is headed back to regionals after finishing second in a Division 2 district tournament Feb. 17 at Warren Woods Tower.
"We're super excited to be going to regionals after all the hard work the girls put in this year," coach Shelley McGuire said.
The top four teams from the district tournament advance to regionals. South Lyon took the district title in the three-round competition, scoring 714.7768 points. The Titans followed with 683.9392.

The run to regionals continues a solid season for McGuire and her squad, as the 14-year coach was named District Coach of the Year for the first time.
"i've been coaching at (Tower) for 14 years, and this is truly a highlight in my career," McGuire said. "It's a great honor and is really a testament to the type of team I had this year."
