Cheerleaders claim another second
With a new set of judges giving a new set of scores, the SCHS Lady Gamecock cheerleaders of coaches Vette Rountree and Mary Helen Harrison took second place in the AA division at Effingham County High School on Sept. 26.
The squad will next be in action on Oct. 10 at Georgia Southern.
“We had a good weekend, not our best, but a good weekend,” said Rountree. “One of our goals this week was to add in more running tumbling and we did. Brianna Lucas, Tamia Prescott and Carli Owens all added running tumbling passes to add to the degree of difficulty part of our running tumbling scores.”
In Springfield, there was a noticeable difference in scores for all squads as compared to the season opener on at West Laurens on Sept. 19. At West Laurens, SCHS finished with a 225, second to East Laurens’ 244. This time around the Lady Gamecocks recorded a 197, but Metter’s top score was just 199.
Metter was third at West Laurens with 220.
A disappointing statistic was, “We again received 10 points in deductions for tumbling falls,” explained Rountree. “This time the deductions were in standing tucks. We were penalized for two girls having ‘knees down’ on their standing tucks.”
For the second week in a row, two of the higher scores for the squad were the degree of difficulty for jumps and partner stunts/tosses. Creativity and formations/transitions also were very high as well.
“Again this week, all five of our single base stunts stuck. They were better than last week,” praised Rountree. “In partner stunts, all four stunts were good and we added a full down from Alexis Stewart to max out in that category.”
Pyramid scores also went down with Rountree commenting, “We did not receive full credit on the pyramid this weekend. There was a slight bobble and both flyers in the pyramid failed to pull one of the required positions.”
Pinewood Christian took third in the competition with a 194, while Long County was a distant fourth at 116. This competition marked the first time the Red and White have competed against a GISA opponent.
“Mary Helen and I are very proud of how well the girls are performing at this point in the season,” Rountree said. “I honestly can’t think of a year where we were able to stick all of our stunts so early in the season.”
