Cougars Are Tops

Corpus Christi CYO Cheerleaders ended the season on a high note, recently taking 1st Place at St. Joe's 5th Annual Cheerleading Competition in Oradell on April 28th.

The Cougars competed against six other Catholic grammar schools. Every squad had to compete in one cheer and one dance then the judges combined the overall scores.

Each girl from every team received a trophy and the 1st place trophy "is so big, it can't fit in the school's showcase," said Principal Michelle Murillo. She continued, "Maybe it's time for a new showcase!"

The girls worked very hard all season (since September) and this proves that hard work, dedication and teamwork pay off. The Cougars are proud of their accomplishments, placing in each competiton they entered; but ending the season in 1st Place was the icing on the cake! Congratulations to the the CCS Cougars for a job well done! Photo and story by Rhonda Tedesco ###

Cougar Cheerleaders Look Sharp

The Corpus Christi CYO Cheerleading Squad recently competed in a cheerleading competition sponsored by the Bergen Tech High School Knights on Sunday, March 5th.

The Cougars competed in the Cheer/Dance category and walked away with a 2nd Place trophy for the small varsity division!

Bergen Tech also held an individual tumbling contest and Captain Kaitlin Renshaw placed 1st in the 12-15 year old tumbling event, and Jessica McLean placed 1st in the 11 and under tumbling category. Karina Ramirez placed 2nd for her toe-touch in the jump-off event for the 12-15 year old category.

The girls also showed their school spirit by performing at the pep rally for Corpus Christi Catholic Schools Week. The squad had a wonderful fun-filled season cheering for the 7th and 8th Grade boys' basketball teams this year and also have been practicing really hard to become a competition squad.

The Corpus Christi CYO Cheerleading Squad is coached by Rhonda Tedesco, Aubrey McLean and Amanda Kirchheimer and consists of 15 girls.

They are: Eighth Graders Captain-Kaitlin Renshaw, Co-captains Katelynn Kurgan and Alie Contino, Kristin Assia, Chelsea DeFelice, Jessica Laurita, Stephanie Palacios, Karina Ramirez, Alyssa Telep; 7th Graders Ashley Cecala, Monique Moore, Brittany Tedesco, Giselle Padilla, 6th Grader Jacqueline Chamoun and 2nd Grader Jessica McLean. The squad would also like to thank the following parents for all their help throughout the season: Donna Contino, Cathy Telep, Jeanine Kolodziej and Gloria Padilla. Obviously, the squad’s determination, long practices and commitment to each other paid off as they were recently asked by invitation only to compete in the St. Joe’s Oradell competition to be held on Friday, April 28th from 7 – 9 p.m. If anyone would like to come and cheer the Cougars on, please do!

The basketball teams and cheerleaders are looking forward to their Communion Breakfast Award Ceremony to be held on April 2nd.

This program is open to all girls in Grades 6, 7, and 8 that attend Corpus Christi or are registered parishioners of Corpus Christi Church and are in the CCD program.

If interested in trying out for the 2006-07 cheerleading squad, please contact Rhonda at 201-342-6723. ###
