Congratulations to the Riverview Junior High Cheerleading Competitive Spirit Team on their first place division award at “The Battle of the ‘Burgh” competition, sponsored by Elite Cheerleading. The competition was held on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at the Peterson Event Center at the University of Pittsburgh.
The Junior High team competed in the Game Day division for middle school/junior high schools. Game Day required the team to perform a sideline chant, crowd leading cheer, and fight song dance. Their routine included dance, tumbling, and stunting, for which they received zero skill deductions.
The “Battle of the ‘Burgh” was the team’s first competition. They will attend at least one more competition in 2020.
The Junior High Cheerleading Competition Team consists of Gwyneth Fichte, Aine Hasselman, Gianna Portera, Jonisha Carlino, Audrey Meyers, Isabella Nolan, Cate Mitchell, Susan Pronio, and George Bernsdorff. They are coached by Catherine Hornsby and Penny McClelland.
