The Cedar Springs High School Competitive Cheer teams captured first-place wins at the West Catholic Cheer Invitational on January 18. 

The Varsity team squared off against seven teams in their bracket and earned strong scores in round one (228.6) and round two (218.68). Spectators erupted in excitement during round three when the stunt group of Paige Pierson, Harlow Hovarter, and Sophia Dault mustered all their strength to push their falling flyer, Gabby Endres, up into her heel stretch and saved the team from major deductions. The team not only finished first in their bracket but also secured the top spot of the entire invitational, with a combined round three score of 736.38. 

“I am super excited with the team this week,” remarked Coach Anne Olszewski. “We worked very hard on our Round 1 and 2 material and you could really see it in the scores. Now we are focusing on a clean Round 3 and will be ready for a successful second half of the season. This strong group of athletic young women consists of three freshmen, two sophomores, eight juniors, and five seniors and each week they step up to the task.”

The JV team trampled the four teams in their bracket by scoring 90.82 points higher than the second-place team and earning a combined round three score of 570.32. “I am super proud of both teams this week,” said JV Coach Katy Hradsky. “We had limited practice time due to the school closings and the girls were also feeling the pressure of exams. While they didn’t achieve their highest round scores or even have their best performances at West Catholic, I think both levels proved they belong at the top and will keep putting in work to get there.” 

The Lady Red Hawks will travel to Caledonia to compete in the LMCCOA Scholarship Invitational. A few of the team’s seniors are hoping to hear their names announced as winners of this scholarship. Good luck seniors and good luck to the Lady Red Hawks as the Road to State continues. #EARNIT!
