THS Cheerleaders at UCA Cheer Camp
The Tecumseh High School Cheerleaders recently returned from the UCA (Universal Cheerleaders Association) Cheer Camp in Stillwater on the campus of Oklahoma State University. While attending the 3 day camp they learned new cheers, chants, dances and stunts while working on team building and leadership skills.
Both the Freshman and Varsity squads received numerous awards throughout camp including Superior Ribbons for evaluations and spirit sticks. Two cheerleaders, Morgan Wicker and Laci Johns, received the “Pin it Forward” Award which was given to cheerleaders who exemplify the values encouraged through cheerleading; leadership, spirit, commitment, kindness and motivation.
On Tuesday night All-American tryouts were held. The UCA All-American team is chosen during a tryout held at each camp. All candidates are asked to perform a cheer, a jump, and a dance. Senior Captain, Brooklynn Helm, was chosen as an All-American and was also invited to try out for the UCA squad for next summer.
On the final day of camp, squads competed in Xtreme Routine and Game Day Championships. The Freshman squad received a Superior trophy for their final evaluation and placed 1st in the Sideline portion of the competition. The Varsity squad received a Superior trophy for their final evaluation and placed 3rd in the Xtreme Routine competition. They also received the prestigious Tradition Award that is given to only one squad at each camp who exhibits Outstanding Leadership Skills.
The Savage Cheerleaders are looking forward to leading the crowd this year and supporting all THS athletic events. They would like to thank everyone who supported them by participating in their carwash and cookie dough fundraisers that helped many of them attend camp. We are blessed to have such supportive community and appreciate them greatly!
