Com­pe­ti­tion cheer team comes away with first win

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL SPORTS -

The com­pe­ti­tion cheer­lead­ing season is now open and the Cedar­town Lady Bull­dogs have a first win of the season un­der their belts.

Head coach Brigitte Tillery re­ported that the team beat out ri­vals Cartersvil­le and Her­itage for the open­ing week­end win of the season, but that there are still is­sues as in­juries plague the squad.

“The squad did a fan­tas­tic job open­ing up the season with a great rou­tine, but there were a few prob­lems and ar­eas we need to im­prove on for the com­ing week at the Univer­sity of West Ge­or­gia,” she said.

This com­pe­ti­tion is an im­por­tant com­pe­ti­tion be­cause UWG and Car­roll­ton High School will be host­ing the re­gion com­pe­ti­tion in early Novem­ber, Tillery said. A win here would keep the Lady Bull­dogs ahead of the lo­cal com­pe­ti­tion, she said.

“This will al­low the team to fa­mil­iar­ize them­selves with the coli­seum and set up of the most im­por­tant com­pe­ti­tion of the year be­fore State, Re­gion Com­pe­ti­tion,” Tillery said.

They com­pete at noon in Car­roll­ton Satur­day.

The 2016 Cedar­town Com­pe­ti­tion Cheer squad got their first win of the season at Pep­perell on Sept. 17.
