Comet cheerleaders fail to qualify for state

SoVaNow.com / November 06, 2013
The Halifax County High School cheerleading squad learned about competition at a higher level last weekend.

The Comets competed against 12 other squads in regional competition. The Comets did not place in the final six, so they were unable to compete again for the right to advance to the state championships.

“We went in with confidence, but it wasn’t our best performance. The girls started off strong with tight motions and strong basket tosses. Throughout the routine we had deductions for two stunt falls caught by bases and a tumbling deduction. We did not place in the top six, so were not able to compete again for a chance to advance to the State Championship. We haven’t received our final placement yet, but that should be available within the week,” said coach Amanda Cross.

“Last week we continued to work on motions and jumps. We looked back at our previous score sheets and reviewed everything the judges told us to work on. Overall the girls had fun with this competition,” assistant coach Sarah Collie said.
