The summer has been busy for local cheer teams across the parish.
The North Webster Knight squad traveled to Panama City, Florida, for a camp last week and took home a whole host of honors for their performances.
Honors earned are as follows:
All-American Award: They tried out in front of the whole camp and UCA staff. Only about 25 from the whole camp made it.
Pin It Forward Award: The UCA staff gives a pin to 10 cheerleaders that stand out for their leadership and kindness on day 1. Then on the last day the ones who have the pin “pin it forward” to someone on another team that they thought showed the same characteristics.
Team Awards: Throughout the week the team learned new dances, cheers, and chants. On the last day of camp they performed what they learned and were judged by the UCA staff.
-3rd place in Cheer
-1st place in Game Day Performance
-1st place in Camp Routine
All-American Mascot & Spirit Award: This was the mascot’s first year at camp and he won the 2 biggest awards.
North Webster also won the Banana Spirit Stick, which is long-standing and important UCA tradition
