Cheer had their very first competition this weekend up in Fontana California at Summit High school, school of the Skyhawks. To prepare they started having 6:00 AM practice three times a week before school and practice once a week after school.
Varsity cheerleader Sophia Imparato says,”It’s hard getting up but it’s worth it because it improves our team and helps us with are studies after school.” This allowed more study time for the cheerleaders.
The competition is a combination of stunts, floor work and dancing. The cheerleaders bonded and improved overall as a team. The team competed in show cheer and pom, two different forms of cheer.
They got fifth overall in pom and third in show cheer. “I’m really happy with our results and our teams dedication. “We definitely grew as a team even if we didn’t win,” says Imparato. LCC’s biggest competitor for this competition was Canyon Creek.
“We’ve always been rivals in cheer because we are about the same level of skill.” The competition lasted all day for LCC and was extremely tiring for the cheerleaders. “I left my house at 6:30 [am] and got back at 5:00 [pm]- it was a long, long day,” says Imparato.
The cheerleaders have another competition this Saturday, January 14th in Tusten leaving the school around 10am. They will be competing in both show and pom cheer and hope to pull out a win.
