Rockridge Cheerleaders Advance To State Finals




We've been told they will compete tomorrow and have advanced to the finals for state.

The Rockridge team scored 86.62 today and are just behind one other team.  

There are a total of 25 schools competing. 


From 1/31/13

The Rockridge competitive cheer team is headed to state. 

Fourteen girls and 1 guy are on the team and they've placed first at three competitions including a sectional championship.     

They performed their routine at a school assembly today and will be scored in 10 different categories.

"The thing that sets our school and our team apart from other schools is we have very talented tumblers," head cheerleading coach Joey Stanforth. "There is a lot of high level gymnastics involved and compared to other schools our size. Our tumbling is higher than most other schools our size."

"This year has been special because we really treat each other like a family," cheerleader Kourtney Kiddoo said. "We're with each other most of the time, seven days a week."

"It's a great feeling to be in the state competition again this year. We have great coaches that have lead us here," cheerleader Genna Flaherty said. "And we just want to prove to our school that we have what it takes."

The competition starts tomorrow and continues on Saturday.
