IMMEDIATE RELEASE: EHS Cheerleaders Win Title!
The Ewing High School cheerleaders participated in the ultra-competitive Colonial Valley Conference Cheerleading Championships earlier this month and walked away with first place honors.
The Blue Devils cheerleaders put on an impressive, crowd-pleasing performance to claim the crown in their classification.
It was a long, arduous trek to the championship for the cheerleaders. Over the past five months, the 23-person EHS cheerleading team worked tirelessly to prepare for the CVC Annual Cheer Classic. The team began training over the summer at weight room sessions and practices which included a week-long cheer camp where they learned their competition routine. As the year evolved, the girls practiced every day in order to hone their skills and attain the level of performance which was demonstrated at the competition.
“The girls were always dedicated to making themselves and the team the very best it could be,” Co-coach Katlin Doolan stated. “From staying late to always seeking improvement, they were focused and determined throughout the year.”
“We are so incredibly proud of each and everyone one of the girls and their championship-winning routine,” Co-coach Amanda Salvitty remarked. “As coaches we could not have asked for a better team or a better outcome for our season.”
A video of their winning performance can be found on the district Twitter feed.
