Hillcrest cheerleaders help principal Ronald Jones fulfill a bet before the Sept. 4 football game against W.T. White.
The varsity and junior varsity squads have plenty to cheer about after taking home a host of awards from camp last week. Varsity received two blue (superior) ribbons in cheer, and JV received one red (excellent) ribbon and one blue ribbon in the same category. Varsity earned first place in the Camp Champs award for cheer and was also awarded the traditions plaque.
The combined squads received two blue ribbons for their dance performance, as well as the Banana Award on Thursday for having the most positive, united, spirited presence at camp that day.
The Hillcrest Panther mascots received a gold (most superior) ribbon for their overall participation and performance during the week.
Two cheerleaders, Ava Fechtman and Kanethia Dobbins, won “Pin it Forward” honors for their outstanding individual contributions to the camp experience.
Five cheerleaders have been named to the UCA-All American squad: Meghan Thompson, Zoe Wright, Molly Fisher, Nichole Porras, and Kenya Mays.
