Pacer Cheer started the year off with a bang this summer! They attended the NCA Get Shocked Camp last week at University of Oregon and had a great time learning new material and coming together as a program. The JV and Varsity were two teams out of a total of 30 teams. Coach Cooper was extremely proud of the efforts of her team.
The following is a list of awards (both team and personal) our Varsity and JV Teams came away with:
VARSITY AWARDS & ACCOLADES
– 10 All-American Nominations
– 2 All-American Team Members. Senior Wesley Wells and Junior Alexa Harris– they only selected 8 total from the entire camp!
– Team Bid (invite) to the National Cheerleading Association Nationals in Dallas, TX
– 3rd place in the Large Varsity Team Performance (the teams that beat them had a lot more team members that we do – we were the “smallest” large team).
– Spirit Stick – they were one of the only teams to receive one each night!
– Wesley Wells was given the “Pin it Forward” Award from a member of the Kelso JV team for her leadership.
– Wesley Wells made finals for the Top Gun Jump Award and Top Gun Tumble Award. They only selected 6 total from the entire camp to take to finals. She won the Top Gun Jumper Award!!
– Wesley was one of 7 seniors that the NCA Staff selected to give out camp staff applications to. This application means that she can try out for a position as one of the NCA Camp Staff next summer! This is a coveted honor and one that is very, very hard to get.
JV AWARDS & ACCOLADES
– 4 All-American Nominations
– Bid to the National Cheerleading Association Nationals in Dallas, TX
– Spirit Stick – they received 3 of the days!
– Jessica received the first round of “Pin It Forward” awards on Night 2 for being such a great leader. She then went on to give her pin to a member of the McMinnville HS team on Night 3.
Congratulations to our Cheer team on all the awards and accolades!
