The Cedar Springs Varsity Competitive Team has been showing what they’ve got this season, finishing usually in the top two. After losing many seniors last year the team has had their struggles, however using their team motto of never settle, they have shown that they can and will overcome. Their season started when they finished 2nd at the Cedar Springs Invitational on January 7, losing to Kenowa Hills. On January 12, they went on to fight for another 2nd place finish at the OK Blue Conference Tournament at Belding, falling short of a 1st place finish by only one point to Comstock Park. The Red Hawk Cheer Team achieved another 2nd place finish on January 18 at The OK Blue Conference Tournament at Comstock Park, again falling to Comstock Park’s 1st place finish. The Red Hawks continued to show their determination, clinching another first place finish at the Red Hawk Invitational on January 26.
Changes in the team’s line-up have also been an obstacle for the Red Hawks. It showed in last week’s competition, where they placed 6th out of 11 at East Kentwood. “This season has definitely been a season of lessons learned about perseverance and the will to overcome obstacles, “ said head Coach Pam Ingles. “This team has shown that they will do what it takes to get the job done for any given competition.” Ingles went on to say, “We will continue to work on cleaning up our rounds and working towards our goal of advancing out of the district competition in three weeks. I know that they will push and work hard to get the job done.”
The Red Hawk Competitive Cheer Team will continue to fight for those top finishes when they travel to Sparta on February 1st and again when they travel to Lowell on February 4th. Please come and cheer on these hard working girls and show them they are supported.
