Seminole Ridge High School cheerleaders recently hosted a Universal Cheerleaders Association camp, with seven area schools joining the Hawks in competition among their junior varsity and varsity teams.
“Our varsity and JV earned the coveted ‘Spirit Stick’ and received ‘Superior’ ribbons from the judges each day of camp,” coach Tammy Licavoli said.
The Seminole Ridge varsity team also took second place in the Extreme Routine competition, and the junior varsity team, named Most Improved at Camp, placed first in both the Cheer Routine and Extreme Routine competitions.
Seminole Ridge varsity seniors Taylor Carroll and Nicole Hopkins were chosen All-American Cheerleaders, entitling them to participate either in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade or travel to England for a New Year’s Day performance. Both were also invited to try out for the Universal Cheerleaders Association as staff instructors.
Three Seminole Ridge junior varsity sophomores — Beatriz Arteaga, Rebecca Birch and Kristina Costanza — were chosen All-American Cheerleaders as well.
