The Highland Park High School cheerleading squads proved themselves against some of the best in the country when they brought home several awards from the recent Universal Cheerleaders Association camp in Grapevine.
In addition to classes and pep rallies, the four-day camp included an opportunity to qualify for UCA All-American status in addition to various team honors. HP’s All-American qualifiers included Nicole Gottlich, Camille McSherry, Arden Wynn, and Annalea Pedigo. All four earned an invitation to perform at Thanksgiving Day parades in either Orlando or Philadelphia, and Gottlich was invited to return as a staff member as next year’s camp.
In team categories, all three HP squads won a first- and second-place award. The varsity took the top spot in Sideline Cheer and was the runner-up in All-Around Game Day, junior varsity was first in All-Around Game Day and second in Sideline Cheer, and freshman placed first in X-Tremendous Routine and second in Sideline Cheer. Congratulations to all.
