Wheaton HS Junior Varsity Cheerleaders Excel at Magruder Exhibition

Wheaton HS Junior Varsity Cheerleading team received several recognitions at the Magruder exhibition event including "Best All Around".

It's not too often that the Junior Varsity of any sport get a lot of attention.  But when a team scarfs away 4 awards in an 8 school event, it is definitely worthy of a little boasting. 

On Saturday, November 4th, Wheaton High School participated in the Magruder High School JV Cheerleading Exhibition.  The organizers prefaced the event with the statement that this is NOT a competition.  Yet they still gave out awards.  Perhaps only certificates (but don't tell that to the girls).  They might as well have been 5 foot trophies; the recognitions clearly meant as much to the cheerleaders as any other award. 

Following last year's performance the Wheaton team had been moved up into the tougher Divison 2 from Division 1.  The event had the 8 schools divided into two groups.  Wheaton was slotted into Group B with Seneca Valley, Northwood and Magruder.  Group A featured BCC, Einstein, Clarksburg and Blake.  Wheaton performed 6th in line and had no falls or any major mistakes.  This was an event to the judges as well.  Wheaton was ecstactic when their name was called for "Best Partner Stunt" award.  It didn't end there.  The Knights JV was awarded "Best Stunt Technique"and "Best Crowd Appeal".  However, the Wheaton crowd lost it when it was announced that for Group "B" they were awarded the top recognition with "Best All Around".  Wheaton JV Cheerleading Coach Elisia Rivera was mobbed by the team.  BCC was awarded "Best All Around" for Group A.  Einstein and Northwood were awarded "Most Genuine Spirit" award for Groups A and B respectively.
