BECKLEY -

It's been two years since the tragic death of a 6th grade cheerleader at Park Middle School.

12-year-old Maddy Bennett died from heart complications in May 2012 after suddenly passing out during gym class.

The Park Middle School Cheerleading team has won the county championship the past two years and they said each year the first thing they do is take a photo pointing to their team angel, Maddy because she is the one that guides them through.

This year would have been Maddy's 8th grade year at Park Middle School.
