Mohigans team has lots to cheer about
Submitted to The Dominion Post
Morgantown High’s varsity cheerleaders gave an outstanding performance at the Philip Barbour Cheer Classic.
Losing one of their bases to an injury a couple of weeks ago and another base in the previous past week, the girls still decided to pull it together and compete. Thanks to Jasmine Cutlip for stepping up and learning how to base, she, Alesa Bowman, Destinee Smitley and Meghan Davis did a wonderful job coming together.
Instead of performing their threeminute routine as originally planned, they performed a 30-second sideline, which took second place, and two stunt groups did a one-minute routine each.
Group two — Jessica Martinez, Meghan Davis, Morgan Villers, Elizabeth Perry and Yvonne Prutilpac — took third place.
Three girls were named outstanding cheerleader: Carla Spear, Elizabeth Perry and Cutlip. Tess Halverson and Sammy Copeland entered the jump competition as well and did an excellent job. Even though group one — Megan Strogen, Tess Halverson, Carla Spear, Katie Vecchio and Cutlip — didn’t make top three, they did a flawless routine.
Overall, the girls are pleased they pulled something together in a couple of weeks and did such a great job. Although Amanda Stahley was out due to injury, she was a great support to the team. The coaches want to let the girls know how proud they are of them and congratulations on a wonderful season.
