The DeForest Area High School Cheerleaders attended the annual UCA Cheer Camp at Marquette University July 14-16th. According to Coach Tonia Feldman, “The theme for this year’s camp was “Going for Gold” and that’s just what DeForest did!” They received the following awards: 1st place Extreme Routine, 2nd place Cheer, 1st place Overall, Superior Award, Traditions Award and they brought home the “Banana,” which goes home to the most spirited team. The DAHS team also qualified to perform at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida.
All of the seniors (Kyana Killerlain, Tatumn Hutchings, Alexa Burmester, Autumn Jurkowski, Maggie Engeseth and Trinity Randle) were able to try out for the All American Team, and Kyana Killerlain and Trinity Randle made the team. They have been invited to perform in the New Year’s Day Parade in London.
