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.
Cougars Are Tops
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 ###
