Cheer teams victorious on the mat

Both the JV and Varsity cheer teams had a great week.

The Cedar Springs High School Competitive Cheer program celebrates another successful week after sweeping the second OK White Conference meet at Forest Hills Northern on January 20th and the West Catholic Invitational on January 24th.  

The resilient JV squad earned the top spot at the West Catholic Invitational by earning a combined round three score of 602.6. Coach Katy Hradsky praised the hard work of her team. “This week CSJV Cheer had half the team out due to illness or injury. Monday wasn’t our best performance, but we survived, knew our limits and pushed through them. The rest of the week was spent preparing for Friday and prayed that we could put 10 girls on the mat to avoid a 10-point penalty. The seven girls who stepped up and competed in all three rounds are superstars! They knew they had to have clean, near perfect rounds to win, and that is just what they delivered. I am so proud of them!”

The Varsity team continue to dominate the OK White by earning a combined round three score of 764.62 at their second conference meet hosted by Forest Hills Northern and continued the winning streak by earning a combined round three score of 761.46 at the West Catholic Invitational.

The Varsity cheer team won both the OK White Conference Meet and West Catholic Invitational.

 Coach Anne Olszewski is very proud of her team. “I have to share with you that each week I am amazed at what this group does,” she remarked. “They are different ages and come from various levels of experience and yet they succeed. I watch them face adversity and overcome. We faced some good teams at West Catholic, some that we have not seen before, and were able to overcome and get the win. February is a difficult month for the sport, as the girls are confronted with illness, injury and fatigue. We have a big competition every single week. We are going in with our eyes wide open and are prepared to just put it all out there. I am sure that both teams have what it takes to succeed.”

The Lady Red Hawks will compete in the final OK White conference meet of the season at CSHS on February 5th at 6 p.m. Let’s pack the stands and cheer on these two talented teams!
