A local family is jumping for joy, after watching one of their own compete in New York City on national TV.

Friends and family showed up at Buffalo Wild Wings Tuesday evening to cheer on nine time world jump roping champion, Tori Boggs, of Parkersburg.

Boggs' team, "Flight Crew Jump Rope" appeared on America's Got Talent last week during the judgement round and advanced to Tuesday's live round.

All four judges loved their high energy performance, and her fans did too.

"I think the judges, they loved it. And who wouldn't love it. They did such a great job. And again it just shows what a great sport it is and hopefully it will get a lot of people excited about the sport," says Bree Maraux, a friend of Boggs.

Tori's mom, Rochelle, anxiously stood by, cheering on her daughter's team as well.

And now Flight Crew Jump Rope's fate is in America's hands to vote to send then onto the next round.
