They are All Americans. Three cheerleaders from Davenport Assumption, and two Knight Company Dancers will have a once in a lifetime experience on New Year's Day. They will perform in the New Year's Parade in London, England.

The dancers are Emma Bassier and Maddison Elizondo. The cheer team members are Spencer Krawiec, Aundria Wedig, and Rachel Clay.

The girls competed at summer camps, and are among an elite group of high school cheerleaders and dancers from across the United States who will perform in the world famous parade.

The girls had to do jumps, a full dance, a cheer. They were also judged on technique and school spirit. They perform routines at several Assumption sporting events, including football, basketball, and wrestling.

The Lady Knights will perform anywhere from four to twenty times during the London Parade. Their performance will not include jumps or tumbling.

The girls leave for London on December 26th. They will also get the opportunity to tour the city, and visit some of London's most famous attractions.
