Cheer: Nationals Recap

By Kendall Albrecht

After a long season of hard work and perseverance, Westmont’s Varsity cheer team completed their competition season at Nationals in Orlando, Florida. On February 10, the team woke up early to put on the first 8 am performance of the competition. After a promising warm-up, Westmont took the stage to compete the routine they’d been perfecting for months leading up to Nationals. Only half a point shy of qualifying for semifinals, the cheerleaders left proud of their performance, having improved greatly from 2022 nationals and received first place in the Northern California Championships previously in the season. Although the competition season came to an end, Westmont cheer does not slow down, now preparing for stunt season, hoping for similar success.
