Rock Canyon High School (RCHS) cheer and poms teams each took first place in the continental league, one of the strongest leagues in the state. The girls won in every division they were entered, bringing home six league titles in freshman poms, junior varsity poms, varsity jazz, freshman cheer, junior varsity cheer and varsity all-girl cheer.
Poms coach Christina Leone said, “All three RCHS poms teams have set their goals high but most importantly are enjoying the journey. This year’s varsity is a young team, but they have proven that ‘attitude is everything,’ overcoming every obstacle by focusing on the positive.”
This is the first time both cheer and poms have won the league title, and the first time they have won in all three divisions. Next up for both varsity teams is the state championships on December 6. The junior varsity and freshman teams will compete at the invitational on December 14. The varsity poms team was also selected to dance at the December 12 Bronco game.
Varsity cheer coach Amanda Mundaca added, “The teams would love everyone’s support! Many of the girls on each team are residents of Castle Pines and their families are active in the Castle Pines community.”
