Will compete in districts February 21

The 2020 Cedar Springs High School Competitive Cheer program celebrated another successful week by earning top spots against some of the best programs in the state of Michigan at the Deltaplex Invitational on February 15. 

“This was by far the biggest competition we have attended this season, in the biggest venue, the very venue that state finals will be held in three weeks from now, which can be very intimidating,” remarked Varsity Head Coach Anne Olszewski. “We saw some teams that we have yet to face this season and will compete against them in Districts and Regionals. The girls handled it all with grace and enthusiasm. Round 1 put us in 2nd place overall (232.9). We had some serious miscues in round two, which dropped us down in the standings (223.9-4th overall). We knew we needed a clean round 3, which I believe they delivered their best round 3 to date (316.3)! 

“I have an incredibly strong senior and junior class. They are awesome leaders. It makes all the difference to the underclassmen to have strong leaders who believe in them and lead the way. At this point, we only have one more guaranteed competition with districts. After that, we must earn our spot to advance. These girls are tenacious and determined. The sky is the limit and I know we can take it all the way back to the Deltaplex!” she said with excitement.

The Red Hawk JV Cheer team finished the season as OK White Champions.

Coach Katy Hradsky is very proud of the girls on her JV cheer team. “In true form, this 2020 CSHS JV team pulled it all together last minute when other teams would have fallen apart. We made last minute changes to both Round 2 and Round 3 to sub in a sick teammate. The girls fought hard to keep it together for their last competition. Our only goals were to finish, no matter what and try to beat the other D2 JV team at the Delta Plex. The girls did just that! With a 7.9-point lead after round 3 (344.6 combined round three score). I couldn’t be prouder of this team. We have reworked and rewrote our rounds to accommodate injuries and illness more times than I can keep track. It was a great way to end our 2020 season. The JV team finished the 2020 season as OK White Conference Champions in the JV division and earning 6 first-place finishes, 1 second place finish, and 3 competitions we didn’t place in due to injuries obtained at the competition.”

The Varsity team will compete in District 11 finals at St John’s High School on February 21st at 6 p.m. Good luck Lady Red Hawks!
