Lady Gamecock cheerleaders open in winning style

Throwing what Coach Vette Rountree proclaimed, “Honestly …probably the best first competition ever,” the SCHS Lady Gamecock cheer squad of Rountree and Mary Helen Harrison walked away with the Cheer Dawg Classic AA Division at Toombs County on Sept. 16.   

To follow up on their season-opening victory, the squad will travel to Dublin on Saturday, Sept. 23, to participate in a competition at West Laurens High School.

With just six combined juniors and seniors in the starting lineup, Rountree and Harrison really did not know what to expect from their youthful group.

“I was a little nervous because our team is SO young,” Rountree said. “Everyone stayed calm through warm-ups and it was just a great day!”

Competing against a pair of 2AA schools and another from 3AA, SCHS finished with 91.7, well ahead of second place Bacon County’s 75. Farther back, but highly competitive for third place were Jeff Davis with 55.7 and Washington County with 54.7. 

In a new scoring format, the maximum score this season is 110, little more than half of the traditional scoring of years past.

There were perfect scores for the squad in degree of difficulty for jumps, primary partner stunts, secondary stunts/tosses/coed, and pyramids.

Rountree wanted to talk about the tumbling though.

“We opened with standing tumbling and that was nice and clean,” Rountree said. “Running tumbling was great. Only one girl put her hands down, all of the others had nice clean landings. We were also throwing two fulls which added to our over tumbling score.”

Timing seems to have been a point the coaches feel needs improvement as Rountree said, “All five single base stunts stayed up although we will need to work on their timing a little,” as well as, “Main stunts were good, still need work on timing.”

In conclusion, Rountree said, “I thought the girls had an amazing showing on Saturday.”
