The Lions did not let a little rain dampen their spirits, taking home two first places, three second places, one third place and two fourth places for a total of eight superior scores and eight bids to the upcoming USA Nationals.
At the JAMZ Regionals, the Lion cheerleaders earned three first places, four second places and one third, again earning eight bids for JAMZ Nationals.
ECYF cheer coordinator Koren Summers was proud of the organization as a whole. "This is an amazing group of girls," she said. "We perform elite routines at all four levels, and we could not be prouder of them."
