Get Ready for Comp Cheer

By Sophie Schwarz

As the football season ends and the winter season approaches, the varsity competition team switches their focus from sideline to TCC to prepare for their first competition. After their evaluation on October 22, the team changed up the routine in hopes to score better on the UCA (Universal Cheer Association) score sheet. Although the team will mainly compete at USA and CCS competitions, which have different score sheets, the main goal is to make it to UCA nationals, so the team will use the competitions to practice their UCA routine. TCC will compete in the small varsity division, hoping to get a bid for nationals at a UCA Regional competition in Manhattan Beach on November 12. The team of seventeen will compete with fifteen athletes at each competition, hoping to make it to Orlando, Florida for the second time ever to compete at UCA nationals in February.
