Rockford competitive cheer brings style

The varsity Ram competitive cheerleaders presented audiences their best performance of the season last Saturday, Jan. 29. During the Lake Michigan Competitive Cheer Officials Association Scholarship Meet at East Kentwood High School, the Rockford Rams placed fourth in one of the closest meets this season. With a final score of 759, the ladies were less than one point from a third-place victory.

With over 20 teams competing in Divisions I through IV, the stands continue to be packed with cheering fans for some of the top teams in West Michigan. The Rams delivered a solid round one performance with a score of 220. The team stuck all 14 back tucks with a round two score of 237. The third round had the crowd cheering as the ladies’ confidence revealed some of the best stunting and tumbling on the mat this season.

Coach Dengler commented, “Once again we had a great round three that was very exciting to watch! The girls put their hearts and souls into that round. We were the first to go in round three, so it was a bit nerve-racking waiting to see how the other teams would do. Finding out we missed a higher finishing place by .679 just proved this is a three-round sport. You have to have three amazing rounds in order to be a top team in the OK Red. This was a great meet for us. A lot of improvements were seen today out of the floor. I am very proud of my team and their effort they gave today.”

The Rams’ next meet is at home on Wednesday, Feb. 2, followed by a Wednesday meet at Grandville on February 9 and at the Deltaplex on Saturday, Feb. 12.
