The Drumheller Val­ley Sec­ondary School (DVSS) Dynos Cheer Team com­peted at Mount Royal Univer­sity in Cal­gary for the an­nual Stam­pede City Show­down com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day, March 17.

They were rec­og­nized for both place fin­ish and sports­man­ship.

“The team did very well, fin­ish­ing first in their level at 91.10 points,” coach Mar­quita McNe­ice re­layed through email. “They were up against two other teams but were also short three team­mates so com­ing out on top was awe­some.”

The Dynos also won Hit Zero pins at ev­ery com­pe­ti­tion they at­tended this year. Hit Zero pins rep­re­sent a flaw­less rou­tine ex­hib­ited at com­pe­ti­tion level events.

“This means that they per­formed with no de­duc­tions, which is a big feat,” said McNe­ice. “They were also men­tioned for their amaz­ing Sports­man­ship, cheer­ing on ev­ery team and per­son that came to the mat.”

The team will be rep­re­sent­ing Drumheller at Provin­cials in Leth­bridge on Satur­day, April 14 and Sun­day, April 15.

“The team has steadily im­proved and are go­ing into Provin­cials with a great score,” said McNe­ice. “We will be com­pet­ing against more teams so it will be a tougher com­pe­ti­tion but we just want the team to go out and have fun – all the rest first is a bonus.”

Al­though the end of the cur­rent sea­son is near, the coaches are al­ready pre­par­ing for next year’s sea­son.

“Our cheer sea­son will be over af­ter Leth­bridge but not for long,” noted McNe­ice. “We’re al­ready plan­ning for next year.”
