The Blanco High School Junior Varsity Cheerleaders attended the National Cheerleader Association (NCA) Home Camp at the Blanco High School gym from June 28th through the 30th. The JV squad consists of Kasie Dowdy, Kristin Watt, Katherine Biggs, Breanna Collins, Abbie Culton, Lexee Jenkins, Jamie McClinton, and Payton Savarino. The squad had some great times and put in many hours of hard work, learning cheers, dances, stunts, and doing lots of conditioning. They received superior ratings for the week in Sideline Chants and Cheers. The squad also received the Technical Excellence Award for their stunts and the S.P.O.T. award, which recognizes their abilities in spotting and stunt technique. The team was given the Herkie Team Award by their instructor as well, recognizing their leadership, values, teamwork, and sportsmanship.
Katherine Biggs, Abbie Culton and Payton Savarino tried out and were chosen as 2011 All American Junior Varsity Cheerleaders and were invited to attend the 2011 Thanksgiving Day Parade in Houston. It is a great honor to be chosen as an All American.
We are very proud of our JV Squad and all the work they have already put in toward having a successful year at Blanco High School. Now that the summer is drawing to a close, the Varsity and JV Cheerleaders will start to paint the signs that decorate our school and the run-throughs that help get the spirit up at football games. We are looking forward to a great school year in 2011-2012!
