The Thompson Rivers University cheerleading squad brought it on at the ICU University World Cheerleading Championships hosted by ESPN.

The girls competed against teams from around the world and managed to get no deductions during their routine. The team scored fifth place in the All Girls Premier Division, bringing home a trophy to kick off the TRU competition season, according to the university's website.

The competition took place in Walt Disney World in Florida over the weekend, and the girls performed their routine on Sunday.

Some of the girls who competed with the team known as Team Black were brand new to cheer this year, yet the team crushed their goals.

According to an Instagram post from the team, their main goal was to perform with zero decorations at the world championships, and they are elated to have done just that.

This is the second time the girls have competed in the competition, scoring their ticket after an event in Edmonton.
