Only team to compete from Wyoming at the NCA National Championship; Douglas High Cheer

February 27, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

      This past year has been a great one for the Douglas High Cheer team, in Douglas WY. They have not only worked hard cheering on the rest of the Douglas High athletes but have worked hard to prove that they are national competitors themselves. This group of young ladies, led by Coach Margo Shatto, placed 20th in their division at the National Cheer competition.

       The first step towards this achievement came at the Greeley, CO National Cheerleading Association camp during the summer of 2013. Here the team received their bid to go onto the NCA National Championship. After receiving this honor, the team worked long and hard on their routine as well as raising funds to be able to afford to attend the competition. The cheer team put on many different fundraisers including several bake sales, a rifle raffle, and a Butter Braid sale. The team was also given generous donations from local businesses, who wanted to show their support to the Douglas youth.

       Coach Shatto speaks highly of the determination, resourcefulness, and work ethic of these young athletes.“Watching them perform the routine that we worked so hard on for five months was amazing. They performed all their stunts without one mistake and danced like they have never danced before” the coach announced about her talented team. The Douglas cheer team performed admirably against over 300 teams from around the nation that were invited to this prestigious event. The chance to travel to a national championship is rare for many high school cheerleaders, but to place is an even greater accomplishment. Their hard work, determination, and innovation has created memories and experiences that the Douglas High School, Douglas community, and the Douglas Cheer team will never forget.
