Walker County Messenger - - Sports - By Scott Herpst

Nearly 450 cheer ath­letes of all dif­fer­ent ages tum­bled, danced and cheered on the mats at Chat­tooga High School on Mon­day night for the fifth an­nual Bob­cat Cheer Ex­trav­a­ganza, pre­sented and hosted by Ge­or­gia North­west­ern.

Re­cre­ation teams, mid­dle school teams and high school teams, both var­sity and ju­nior var­sity, per­formed and com­peted in three dif­fer­ent di­vi­sions for awards in both cheer and rou­tine.

The Ge­or­gia North­west­ern Bob­cat cheer­lead­ers put on an ex­hi­bi­tion per­for­mance for the crowd at the end of the night.

Bob­cat cheer head coach Karen Stoker called it “an­other suc­cess­ful event”.

“Ev­ery­one did so well and we only had two teams that had reg­is­tered that couldn’t make it,” she ex­plained. “It was won­der­ful to have it here at Chat­tooga for the first time. We loved it. They have an amaz­ing facility and fans here re­ally sup­port cheer­lead­ing.

“I also have to thank our won­der­ful staff at Ge­or­gia North­west­ern for their help and a big thanks goes out to Tina Carter, who checked in all the teams that per­formed tonight.”

The Ring­gold Re­cre­ation cheer­lead­ers took first place for Cheer in Divi­sion I, fol­lowed by Chicka­mauga and Rossville, who tied for sec­ond, and LaFayette, who fin­ished fourth. Chicka­mauga won first place for Rou­tine, fol­lowed by LaFayette and Ring­gold.

In Divi­sion II, Rossville Re­cre­ation won first place in Cheer, fol­lowed by LaFayette, East Ridge, the Ridge­land Ath­letic Youth Academy and Sum­merville. LaFayette earned first place in Rou­tine. Rossville was sec­ond and Sum­merville was third.

The first place award for Divi­sion III Rou­tine went to the Cheer U Di­a­monds, while the Gaylesville (Ala.) Tro­janettes were sec­ond.

Chat­tanooga Val­ley took first in Cheer and in Rou­tine for the Mid­dle School Spirit Divi­sion. Chat­tooga was first in Cheer and Rou­tine in the Mid­dle School Com­pe­ti­tion Divi­sion, while Rossville was sec­ond in both cat­e­gories.
