The Heritage High School cheerleading squad recently competed in the Elite Universal Cheerleading Association camp at the University of Tennessee, during which the team scored two firsts and two of its members earned selection to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.
Competing in stunting, pyramids, extreme dance and chants, the Lady Mountaineers were awarded the trophy for superior teamwork and attitude, with Heritage also finishing first in cheer and chant, second in extreme dance. Heritage was also awarded the Camp Champ Trophy, given to the squad that is game ready and throughout the camp proved the best. Holley Chambers and Mackenzie Morgan were named camp All-Stars, bringing with it an invitation to the Macy’s parade. The 2008-00 squad includes seniors Allie Rinehart and captain Hayley Pickens, juniors Holley Chambers, Jessica Blair and Audrey Leonard, sophomores Ashley Clabough, Lauren Waters, Buffy Glenn, Kelsey Russell and Morgan and freshmen Eva Adams, Jenna Gillespie and Kayla Jones.
