Five competitive cheer squads traveled to Lake Preston Monday night to get one more competition under their belts before heading to Rapid City for the State Competitive Cheer Meet to be held this Friday. Cheer teams from Arlington-Lake Preston, Redfield, Faulkton Area, Deubrook Area and Northwestern participated in the event.
Deubrook Area was the top point getter in the evening’s performances with 145.5 points, with Arlington-Lake Preston scoring 134 points to take second place. The final three teams were decided by a slim margin with Redfield coming in with 110 points, Faulkton Area receiving 109 points, and Northwestern with 103 points.
Co-Head Competitive Cheer Coach Krista O’Dea was proud of the performance of the Badger Cheer Team.
“They gave their home crowd a great performance tonight, and to take second place at home is remarkable,” said O’Dea. “No matter the outcome of State, the growth of this team has been incredible. They are young and small, but have learned how much hard work pays off. They have never given up! My coach heart is so full.”
