A dynasty built on love.

That's what the Lincoln-Way East cheerleading team has built.

The Griffins did it again, as they captured first place in the large school division of the IHSA state cheerleading finals, which were held Friday, Feb. 7 and Saturday, Feb. 8, at Grossinger Motors Arena in Bloomington.

It is the second straight state championship and fifth in the past seven seasons for East, which was honored with a parade and trophy presentation at the school on Sunday, Feb. 9.
