PAWTUCKET â€” Ask Jessica McLaughlin her highlight as a Tolman High cheerleader in the early 2000s, and she answers immediately.
â€śWe went to the AmeriCheer National Championships at the Disney Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Fla. my senior year (2003), and we actually made it to the finals,â€ť the still-perky McLaughlin explained. â€śWe ended up fifth in the country out of 18 teams, and I still think about it. I remember the pressure of making it to the final round, and the feeling of accomplishment that came with it.
