Varsity cheer takes first in their division at West Ottawa

Varsity cheer took finished first in their division and third overall at West Ottawa.

On December 15, all three levels of the Cedar Springs Competitive Cheer team traveled to Holland and competed in the West Ottawa Invitational. 

The Varsity team placed first in their division, with a combined score of 709.26, but several critical errors were made in Round Three that resulted in the squad falling from first place overall to finishing third. Coach Anne Olszewski offered this comment: “This was an incredible learning experience for the teams. The Varsity took first and took home a trophy, but it was not our best performance. This experience will prepare us for future competitions when the margins are tighter, and a greater level of concentration is necessary.”

JV cheer finished third at West Ottawa.

The JV team finished third within a large field of Division 1 schools. Coach Katy Hradsky is facing challenges with minor injuries and eligibility issues and is using the strengths of her athletes to maximize scoring for each round. Coach Olszewski said about the team, “I am so proud of the girls and am very lucky to have Coach Katy as part of the coaching staff.”

The Middle School team earned the highest scores of their season and finished 2nd place overall against a pool of 26 teams! “They are one of the few teams that throw back-handsprings in round 2. That’s a testimony to Coach Abby Olszewski. She has a team of primarily 7th graders and they are still scoring as high as the 8th grade teams,” reported Anne Olszewski.

The team will be competing at the Jenison Invitational on December 19, which will be the last competition for 2018. The road to state will continue in 2019…#EARNIT!
