The Montgomery Blair auditorium was rocking Saturday with cheerleaders from nine schools in Montgomery County raising the roof in this Division III competition. The Einstein Titan Cheerleaders were able to go first, which paid off with a second place finish.
The Wheaton Knights had the unenviable position of sweating it out and waiting seventh in line in the packed gymnasium. The Knights were well represented by friends, family, faculty and students to cheer on their cheerleaders.
In the end Walter Johnson placed third and Bethesda Chevy Chase took first prize. The Knights walked away with the well deserved “Spirit Award”.
When Wheaton Cheerleading Coach Kim Weaver was asked how she thought the girls did compared to last year she said, "We are a very young squad this year so it is a bit different. Either way, the girls did an outstanding job and we are excited to start preparing for our next competition as well as preparing for next year. We are determined to place in the top 3 next year!"
The Knights begin preparing for the Winter Cheerleading schedule, including an expected competition in January at Paint Branch High School.
