Orlando, FL, Feb. 12, 2017–The Randolph High School Competition Cheerleading team earned third -place in the Super Varsity Game Day Division at the National High School Cheerleading Championship at ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida.
“We were able to perform a FLAWLESS routine,” said Head Coach, Kim Moreno. “The team’s perseverance and hard work all season has definitely paid off.”
The team's captains noted that the students all worked very hard on their routine and their hard work paid off.
“I am incredibly proud of the hard work all of my teammates put into the routines at every practice and competition leading up to Nationals," said Jess Freund, one of the team's captains. "We were so lucky this year to have such a talented coaching staff, supportive athletic department, and amazing parents who made this trip and our success possible.”
Captain Alejandra Roman added that “It was great growing with the team since our freshman year and it's amazing to see a team of 12 girls turn into 32.”
The competition was a perfect way for seniors to culminate their years on the team, said Taylor Stoia, another team captain.
“This year's Nationals experience was the best way to end my cheerleading career!" Taylor said. "All of the tough times and sacrifices we made really paid off. We had early morning practices, fought through injuries, and were all 100 percent dedicated to the sport. Getting to finals was our goal but coming out with a medal and being top three in the country was the greatest feeling in the world! Our entire year of work culminated in one three-minute performance and I couldn't be happier with the results. We all felt like a team and knowing everyone had to do their job in order to succeed created such a tight bond. I love our ‘Ramily’ and everything we've accomplished together and I'm beyond blessed to be the captain of such an amazing team.”
