Carey takes out top titles in Cheer Champions 2017
In November this year our Carey Cheer and Pom teams competed at the Cheer Unlimited Australia Grand Championships for 2017. Entry into this national competition is by invitation only, with the Carey teams competing against professional clubs and schools with specialist cheer programmes, where participants train daily.
The Carey Cheer team made up of 75 students trained incredibly hard in preparation for the event, coached by Carey teacher Mrs Amy Taylor. While optimistic that their hard work would pay off, the Carey teams were well aware of the high calibre of clubs they were competing against and did not expect to rank significantly in the championships.
Much to the surprise of the students, the staff and other teams, the Carey teams not only achieved high rankings in the majority of their competitions, but took out Overall Junior Champions in Cheer and Pom and 1st place in Senior Cheer.
Cheer coach, Mrs Taylor said, “to finish the year on such a high was amazing, the results achieved were unexpected, but an incredible way to finish the season. I am so proud of the students involved!”
Congratulations to all of the students who invested their time and talent into this competition. A special thanks goes to coach Mrs Amy Taylor, along with all of the teachers and parents who played a role in training and supporting these students.
