Cheerleaders compete in CL Championship
Northwestern Lehigh cheerleaders placed fourth in the Game Day Division at the Colonial League Cheerleading Championships last Wednesday at Catasauqua High School.
“In my mind, they are winners no matter what,” said Northwestern Lehigh first-year head coach Kate Petcavage. “They hit everything in their routine. They had a mini-thing happen, but they saved it.”
The Tigers opened their routine with music and a chant with signs. Next was a cheer, followed by a cheer with stunts and signs. The routine ended with a band dance in a triangle formation that included lifts, a chant, and signs.
“I think we did a good job, and we have a lot of new girls,” said senior captain Andi Frano. “Leading up to it, I was nervous, but once we started, I was excited.”
The Tigers scored 190 points.
“The crowd was very loud. I was glad they were cheering,” Frano said.
Wilson took first place with 230.5 points, Pen Argyl placed second with 223.5 points, and Bangor was third with 204.5 points.
“It was hard watching because I wanted to be out there helping them,” Petcavage said. “They were very clean and sharp.”
Northwestern Lehigh’s squad is comprised of 17 cheerleaders.
