On Tuesday 22nd March, 21 cheerleaders from University Academy Kidsgrove took part in the annual North Staffordshire Cheerleading Championships at Fenton Manor.
The team consisted of pupils from every year group and was captained by Amy Bancroft in year 10. The girls performed brilliantly; their routine was flawless. The girls stunts were technical and performed with precision, dance moves were all in time and performed with energy and gymnastic sequences were stunning. Overall, the girls were just pipped to first place and came in a valiant second.
Mrs Castrey and the rest of the Academy are immensely proud of the UAK Panthers Cheerleading Team. The pupils are dedicated and passionate about what they do and it really shows in their performances. It is events like these that make UAK great!
Despite the result the team will go back fighting next year and are looking forward to the UDO Championships in July.
