Lady Pilots Cheerleading Camp Brings Out 78 Area Campers
The River High School cheerleading camp, held June 24-29 at Hannibal Elementary School, was a huge success for the 65 campers and 11 cheerleaders who attended.
Meeting from 5-8 p.m. daily, campers worked on cheering routines, sideline cheers, dance, and gymnastics. The campers also provided entertainment on the last day of camp with a dance and cheering routine for family and friends at the newly-renovated R.L. Potts Gymnasium on Friday.
The campers worked hard and had fun. Snacks and refreshments were served throughout the camp.
River Pilot Head Cheerleading Coach Jacque Brown and Assistant Coach Heidi Pfalzgraf said, “I thought the campers did very well” and noted that “the girls picked up things very quickly and they were very eager to learn everything they could about the cheerleading craft.”
The camp was open to grades Pre K-8th grade.
This year, the future Lady Pilot cheerleaders who participated in the camp were Brooke Whetsel, Becka Stewart, Dacia Thompson, Breanna Kovach, Amanda Bennett, Tiffany Brown, Chelsea Pandzik, Zoey Miller, Maria Morrow, Kristen Deaton, and Gabby Good.
In addition, the 2013-14 RHS varsity cheerleaders who mentored campers were Brooke Whetsel, Becka Stewart, Dacia Thompson, Breanna Kovach, Amanda Bennett, Tiffany Brown, Chelsea Pandzik, Zoey Miller, Maria Morrow, Kristen Deaton, and Gabby Good.
