Cheer teams make up lost ground

Cheer teams make up lost ground

The Red Hawk Varsity Cheer team. 

CSHS Competitive Team 2021 has proven that dedication, determination and perseverance are characteristics of a team that is united and able to overcome the challenges of a difficult situation.

“This season has been one for the books,” explained Varsity Coach Anne Olszewski. “Not only did we lose a number of girls to graduation, but we were unable to attend summer camp; had a limited sideline season; and a two-month delay in starting the competitive season. When we were finally cleared to play, five of my top athletes were contact traced for 10 days. I feel like we are 10 days behind every team in the state right now, but these girls are making up time fast.

We are a young team and our freshmen are learning what it’s like to compete at the Varsity level. Red Hawk cheer may have had a slow start, but we are coming back with a vengeance. I am just super proud of every single one of them.”

The hard work and perseverance of these young athletes is paying off, as they continue to crush their personal records at each meet. On Monday, the Lady Red Hawks traveled to Forest Hills Eastern for their first OK Gold Conference meet. The JV team earned first place with a score of 563.5 and Varsity finished second with a score of 687. 

On Saturday, the Lady Red Hawks squared off against two of the top programs in the state at the Mona Shores Quad in which the JV team finished 2nd with a score of 601.2 and Varsity earned third place with a score of 737.64, earning their highest round 1 and 2 scores to date. 

JV Coach Katy Hradsky is confident that the remainder of the season will continue to improve. “I am excited to see what they do this week and next,” she said. “It’s hard to believe our season is almost over, it just began!”

The CSHS Competitive Cheer program competed at Kenowa Hills on March 3rd for their second OK Gold Conference meet and will compete in the Comstock Park Invitational on March 6. Good luck Lady Red Hawks!
