high school cheerleading

Thurston, Springfield corner titles at state

Only two champions repeat at the highly competitive state cheerleading finals
Feb. 9, 2013 / By Cliff Pfenning, Oregonsports Journal

After seven years of winning titles in the Coed Division, the Springfield cheerleading team moved to another division Saturday, but with the same result.

The Millers won the Class 5A Small Division with a stellar performance to highlight the OSAA Cheerleading state championships Satuday at Memorial Coliseum.

Springfield, though, was one of just two teams that won a title last year, one of the biggest title turnovers in the history of the event that has been operated since 1984. Sweet Home won the Class 4A Large title, and was technically the lone repeat champion from last year as Springfield won in another division.

From the seven divisions contested Saturday, three schools - Newberg, Cascade and Rainier - won a title for the first time, Aloha won a title for only the second time, and scored that win over Metro League rival Westview by less than two points.

Thurston ended three years of second-place finishes to Springfield by winning in the Coed final with a performance that scored the highest total of the day from judges.
