Lo­cal clubs reach the podium cheer­lead­ing provin­cials.

“We couldn’t have asked for a bet­ter end of the year … Ev­ery team out there crushed it, nailed it.”

Rita Fudge, Cape Power pro­gram di­rec­tor

Cape Breton clubs took home the hard­ware from the Cheer Nova Scotia provin­cials held at Cen­tre 200 over the week­end.

The event fea­tured 80 teams from across Nova Scotia, in­clud­ing four Cape Breton pro­grams: the host Cape Power Cheer, Premier Cheer All-Stars, Rich­mond Cheer Ath­let­ics and Fu­sion Cheer All-Stars. Ath­letes ranged in age from three years old to over 30.

Rita Fudge, Cape Power pro­gram di­rec­tor, said the com­pe­ti­tions went off with­out a hitch.

“The best part about it was we got all the teams from across Nova Scotia to Cape Breton,” she said. “I know we travel a lot to them, so it was so nice to be able to show them our venue, our is­land — that was great.

“Ev­ery­one was com­pli­ment­ing us on our hos­pi­tal­ity. It was safe — there were no in­juries, which is a re­ally big plus in a com­pe­ti­tion. It was awe­some.”

The host Cape Power squad in­cluded first-place fin­ishes in the IoCoed and Ju­nior 2 di­vi­sions. They took sil­ver in the IoAg and Se­nior 2 Di­vi­sions, while plac­ing third in Se­nior 3 and Youth 2. The Se­nior 1 squad took fourth place, while Youth 1 and Mini 1 fin­ished in fifth.

“We couldn’t have asked for a bet­ter end of the year,” Fudge said of the Cape Power teams. “Ev­ery team out there crushed it, nailed it.”

The Premier Cheer team in­cluded first place fin­ishes in IoAg, Ju­nior 1 and Mini 1 Di­vi­sions. They also claimed sec­ond in Se­nior 4.2 and Youth 1.

Rich­mond Cheer took a pair of third-place fin­ishes: in Ju­nior 1 and Se­nior 4.2, while Fu­sion Cheer placed sixth in the Ju­nior 1 com­pe­ti­tion.
