Cheerleaders and Starlettes Excel at Camp
While most students are enjoying their summer vacation, the season is well under way for STA's Cheer and Dance teams. Since tryouts in March, the teams have been preparing for their first big events: Summer Camp with the Universal Cheerleading Association and the Universal Dance Association.
The Starlettes attended a convention camp in New Orleans. They were awarded the coveted Leadership Award, voted on by all the teams who attend the camp. Their Home Routine placed 2nd and they received a Superior Trophy, which earns them an automatic bid to UDA's National Dance Team Championship in Orlando in late January. The Starlettes also brought home a Spirit Stick. Seniors Chloe Chauvin, Haileigh Bolton, Emily Owens, and Cailin Sampey were all named All-Americans.
The Cheerleaders attended camp in Gulf Shores and were able to enjoy some beach time! They had a very rewarding camp, winning 1st in both Cheer and Chant. They placed 4th in Extreme Routine and also were named GameDay Champs! Seniors Britley Wells and Allie Ridgell were named All-Americans.
Congratulations to both teams!
