Three Starz All-Stars teams walked away with top scores and high rankings from the Xtreme Spirit National Championships in Birmingham on March 8.

The Sparkling Starz, in the level one mini team division, won first place and also won as grand champions over all of the other level one teams at the competition. For their win, the group of 12 girls received a sweatshirt.

In the level two youth team category, the Shooting Starz won fourth place. The divisions are more difficult as the girls get older and move up a level.

The Shining Starz, in the level three junior team category, won first place. The group of 19 girls learned a new routing in three weeks filled with harder stunts, pyramids, jumps and tumbling.

The Sparkling and Shining Starz received free paid bids by winning first place at the competition.

The local Starz will be in  action this weekend at the WSA Beach Nationals in Ft. Walton Beach, Fla., for their final competition of the season.
