Special to The Leader
The Orange Leader
The Mauriceville Middle School cheerleaders recently attended National Cheerleaders Association camp at Stephen F. Austin University and came away with numerous honors.
At camp, the Mauriceville Middle School squad received a trophy for being named Game Time Top Team, as well as the Herkie TEAM Award, awarded to squads who exemplify the qualities upon which NCA was founded: leadership, values, and teamwork, Herkie Team plaque, National Championship Bid, and all blue, superior ribbons on evaluations. The girls were also all given a blue, superior ribbon to take home for this.
Madison Murdock, Karlie Morgan, Andrea Howard, Taylor Malone, and Madalyn Blackshear were nominated for All-American Cheerleader. The mascot, Lilli Fair, was named an All-American mascot and was given the “prop artist” award.
Mauriceville Middle School cheer coaches are Heidi Strandberg and Amy Bryant.
