Cheerleaders Score Victories

Foothill's group stunt cheer teams took the first- and second-place awards in the high school intermediate group stunt category at the USA Regional cheer competition held Saturday at Bear Creek High School in Stockton.

Foothill took the top two honors in their category, which included a total of nine high school cheer groups. Each stunt group has four or five cheerleaders who perform as many flawless, intricate stunts as possible in under a minute. The routines are timed to music. Points are awarded for difficulty, execution and showmanship.

The competition cheer teams head to Southern California next weekend for a pair of regional competitions against Southern California schools. The state competition will be held in February at the University of California, Davis, and nationals will be in Los Angeles in late March.

Foothill's group stunt cheer teams are:
Team Sarina
Sarina DeJoy
Bailey Downum
'Alakoka Kailahi
Jordan Robinson
Haley Zavattero

Team Gabbie
Caressa DeRossett
Camile Hamlin
Hayley Jefferies
Emily Palange
Gabbie Scalise

The teams are coached by Kim DeJoy and Megan Moore.

Congratulations to Foothill's talented cheerleaders!
