Fairfield Ludlowe Cheerleading finished first out of 21 teams, claiming the Class LL state Championship Sunday at the New Haven Athletic Center.

Ludlowe, also the FCIAC champion this year, is the first Fairfield team to ever claim the state championship and the only team to capture both titles in the same year.

The girls, coached by Ashley Carolan and Linsey Neglio, will look to sweep competitions next weekend at the seventh-annual New England Interscholastic Spirit and Dance Championship in Lawrence, Mass.
