Jay Cheerleaders Cheer at ACC Championship Game

This past weekend was an experience of a lifetime for the Varsity cheer squad at Jay High School.  The team was selected to cheer during pregame activities at the ACC championship game in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The girls began preparing for this event over a month ago when UCA sent the materials to them that they would be performing.  The Royals practiced every day on the routine to get it perfect before performing in front of thousands of Georgia Tech and FSU fans.   The girls intended to represent their school and Santa Rosa County well during this event and they did just that!   They arrived in Charlotte just in time to get their uniforms on and attend practice with the other squads that were selected from the southern region.  ACC mascots greeted the girls at the Panthers practice field for photos, then the girls went to work to make the routine perfect.

As game time neared, the girls anticipation grew.    They were led through the tunnel to the stadium and as the darkness filled with light the girls experienced something very few people experience in their lifetime.  Taking the field in front of camera crews, bands, football players, and thousands of screaming fans was amazing!    Senior, Alisha Roberts said, “This is the coolest thing I’ve ever done!   It’s amazing!”.

The Jay cheerleaders  (Varsity and Jr. Varsity) work extremely hard to be one of the best squads around, not only on the floor but in classroom as well.   Over 60% of the girls are in honors classes, and over 80% were named to the honor rolls last grading period.  These young ladies are leaders on the field and in classrooms and clubs around school.  Many volunteer their time to help others in the community as well.

Attending ACC were:  Brittani Ashworth, Makenzie Bray, Alisha Roberts, Kendra Wells, Emily Wright, Alaina Smith, Leslie Kinder, Savannah Dubose, Amber Parker, Launa Burkhead, Danielle Harrington, Reilly Andrews,  Savannah Seevers, Miranda Roberts, Courtney Walther, Meaghan Mayo, Emma Andrews,  Kaley Cofield.  The girls are coached by Junia Fischer.
