Whitman’s JV Cheer coach Tracy Koch is proud to announce that her JV Cheerleaders earned 1st place this past Saturday in a competition with 13 other teams. Hosted by Harborfields High School, this past weekends competition is the lead-up to the Junior Varsity finals which will be held this Saturday, January 27th beginning at 10AM at Smithtown West High School.

“The girls performed their routine with so much excitement and energy,” said Coach Koch.  “It was felt throughout the gym.” The power four event, where one stunt group consisting of four girls must hold a liberty position on one leg in the air for as long as they possibly can is always a true test to teamwork, skill, and strength. With Eve Metzger, Shannon Decker, and Tara Eduardo forming a solid base, 7th grader Kiara Brown held her position for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. The groups time in liberty position was longer that the actual routine requirements.

Congratulations JV Cheerleaders and Thank You Varsity Cheer for your encouragement and support!
