Henley High School cheerleaders placed second last weekend at the USA Spirit Nationals Competition at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif., against teams from all over the country.
To compete, the Hornets squad had to qualify by video in December. The routine they performed was different from the routine they used a couple of weeks earlier that earned them third overall in the OSAA Cheerleading State Championships 6A/5A/4A/3A/2A/1A small coed category.
They had one week to practice the new routine before the national event. Additional members were added for the Anaheim competition.
Members of Henley’s cheerleading national squad were Kyndall Felsinger, Elle Overstreet, Mathilda Dahlback, Andrew Bullock, Cassy Harter and Sammi Quintana, Kelsie Felsinger, Lexi Dolan, Kylene Thornton, Victor Manzo,Sapphire Honeycutt, Lois Macdonald, Chloe Nicosia, and Jasmyne Baylie. Coaches are Aubrey Westfall, Elise Rico, Marlen Beezley and Paulette Rico.
