Cheer Squad Finishes in 2nd Place in COA National Competition

Apr 22, 2013

For the first time in DC3 cheer history, the cheer squad competed in COA Mid-America Nationals in Kansas City, MO on April 6 and 7th, 2013 at Kansas City Convention Center, Bartle Hall.  This was the 1st competition and only competition for this year. There was a competition planned for February in Denver but the major snow storms prevented DC3 Cheer from gong to this.  Only 2 of the 8 on the squad had any type of competition experience so it was a great learning experience for the team.  The squad took 2nd place in the division.  This event was last major event in the 2012-13 Cheer team's season.  Tryouts for next year's team is the only things that is left in the season.  As for the competition Coach Nigh had this to say "I am incredibly proud of my cheer team, they went out there and performed well!"

In 2013-14 Coach Nigh plans to attend even more competitions and hopes to go attend a national level competition. "We will see what happens in this next year I have some incredibly talented kids coming in this next year and will help us be even better and more competitive"
