Warren — Youth cheering was on the agenda on Sunday, May 2 at the Midcoast Athletics Center. Was it ever.

In fact, 28 Maine teams, from as far south as Scarborough and north as Aroostook County, competed in the in-person event.

In fact, while a few squads were, at even given moment, inside the facility to perform or warm-up, a majority of the young athletes were outside in the parking lot area as they prepared to show off their routines.

One of the teams in attendance was the MAC Storm, members of which appear in the 100 photos below.
