The Cape Henlopen varsity football cheerleaders attended a private camp sponsored by the National Cheerleaders Association July 23-25. During the camp, the team worked on cheers, chants, dances, jumps and many stunts. Girls were flying high as they learned new stunts this year in the core stunt class, basket toss class and pyramid workshop.
The team was proud to announce that 14 girls were nominated for the NCA All- American team. Tryouts for the All-American team will be held later, and the girls who make the team will have the opportunity to cheer in special events such as the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The team received the prestigious Herkie T.E.A.M. Award for outstanding spirit, unity and leadership throughout the camp. The team also received a bid to compete at the NCA National High School Cheerleading Championship. During evaluations, the team received one excellent ribbon and three superior ribbons for the cheers and chants.
"I'm very proud of the girls' accomplishments and their growth during camp," said coach Molly Lingo. "Check out the girls every Friday night as they cheer on Cape Henlopen varsity football team."
