The Standard Journal - - LOCAL SPORTS - The Cedar­town cheer team poses with their tro­phy at Hill­grove. From staff re­ports

The Lady Bull­dogs are on a roll as the com­pe­ti­tion cheer team re­mains un­de­feated for 2017, win­ning over teams big and small in their re­cent road trip last Satur­day.

Cedar­town took the Grand Cham­pion tro­phy once again in their lat­est com­pe­ti­tion at Hill­grove High School on Satur­day, Oct. 7. It im­proved their record on the sea­son to 4-0 on the sea­son so far, and with per­fec­tion on the mind for a sec­ond year in a row the Lady Bull­dogs pulled off a big day on the score sheets again, ac­cord­ing to head coach Brigitte Tillery.

“Ev­ery week, like all sports, they work dur­ing prac­tices to per­fect and im­prove skills, and this week the cheer­lead­ers did just that for the first time this sea­son,” she aid. “They im­proved their scores and hit their rou­tine.”

Tillery said that their di­vi­sion was only Cedar­town and Cen­tral Car­roll in last Satur­day’s com­pe­ti­tion, their grand cham­pi­onship was earned by outscor­ing squads in ev­ery di­vi­sion, from sin­gle A to 7A and co-ed teams.

“I and Coach Ruff could not have been more proud of the team to­day for ex­e­cut­ing to al­most the best of their abil­ity with a few mi­nor prob­lem­atic ar­eas re­main­ing, such as stunts,” Tillery said. “They will work hard this week to im­prove the part­ner stunts be­cause this is the weak­est area on the score sheet.”

Although the Lady Bull­dogs came away with dou­ble wins last Satur­day, Tillery said the team still have ar­eas to im­prove for the next two In­vi­ta­tional com­pe­ti­tions at Car­roll­ton and Wood­stock high schools be­fore they per­form for the re­gion com­pe­ti­tion in early Novem­ber.

“The girls were amaz­ing to­day (Satur­day) and we are ex­cited for their win and proud of their team­work, sports­man­ship, char­ac­ter and per­for­mance,” Tillery said. “We feel very blessed and for­tu­nate to coach such an out­stand­ing group of ath­letes.”

The team is back in ac­tion in two weeks with Uni­ver­sity of West Ge­or­gia host­ing cheer squads for a Car­roll­ton High Schoolor­ga­nized in­vi­ta­tional.
