The TAHS Cheer Competition Squad wrapped up their season at the Mountain League Championship at Bald Eagle High School on February 2nd. It was the last of five competitions that the girls participated in this season.

At Bald Eagle, the girls received one of their highest scores of the season with a 205.5, and finished second in the Mountain League against Bald Eagle, and Philipsburg.

The squad did a great job this season. There were many hurdles that they were faced with but I believe that they came out even stronger in the end.”

— Head Coach Kera Patton

“The squad did a great job this season. There were many hurdles that they were faced with but I believe that they came out even stronger in the end. After a disappointing showing at Districts, we made some changes and the girls did what was asked of them,” said Coach Kera Patton.

“We had three seniors Taylor Dixon, Makenzie Stauffer, and Makayla Ritchey who really stepped up and led the underclassmen the last two months. Because of their drive and dedication, they finished the season with a strong performance at the Mountain League Competition. They made me really proud,” added Patton.

At their first competition, on November 9th in Altoona, the girls came in second place against Bishop Guilfoyle and Altoona with a score of 179. Their coaches had told the team that they were competing as exhibition, but in the end they found out they placed second and were very proud of themselves.

Their second competition was at the Richland Cheer Classic. Their score was 183.1 with a 3rd place against Somerset and Richland.

On November 19th the girls had their 3rd competition at Bald Eagle for District Prep, taking first place with a score of 213.5

In Altoona again, they had Districts on December 10th, coming in 5th place with their score of 162.5

On February 5th they had State College Championships taking 3rd place and a score of 179.3.

“I am so proud of this squad who with circumstances beyond their control had to regroup, rework, and come together as a team,” said Coach Cris Hunter.

Overall the girls had another great season and they will be looking forward to competing with the underclassman joining them for the upcoming season.

“I hope we will be able to regroup and have another successful comp season. I look forward to the fresh faces, and the rebuilding of our squad for next year,” said sophomore Mya Romano.
