This summer BHS cheer attended cheer camp at the University of Puget Sound where both JV and Varsity squads competed. In addition to all of these kids being amazing role models, these athletes also took home several awards. It is an understatement to simply say I am so proud of them.
These awards include:
1st place Leadership award - This award is given to the top cheer program that "if you had to leave your coach and school, where would you like to go" This is voted on by the other campers. There were 25 other schools and ALL of them chose Bainbridge High School.
1st place Spirit award - This award is given to the most spirited school over the course of the camp. This is voted on by the staff and instructors.
1st place Jump Off award - This award is given to the best jumper at camp. Lily Kraus competed and won this honor.
All American - This award is given to cheerleaders that are seniors and compete at camp. The winners are invited to perform in the London New Years Parade. Audrey Curran, Lily Kraus, Matt Zuzelski, Tim Strachen,and Carson McCarrell.
Pin it Forward award - each staff person chooses one cheerleader that they feel has gone over and beyond as a role model. Matt Zuzelski was one of them. Those cheerleaders that received a pin then "pin it forward" to another cheerleader. Carson McCarrell, Morgan Wickline, Christina Rawlings, and Lily Kraus received pins.
