Cheer Squad Takes First Place

Congratulations to Hart's hard-working competition cheer squad for winning first place at at last weekend's United Spirit Association's regional competition at Washington High School in Fremont.

The win was especially gratifying because the cheer squad had to change its entire routine just three days before the competition after one cheerleader was injured. The girls' perseverance and dedication to the team really shined through in their hard work.

Hart competed against seven other teams from throughout the Bay Area, including Pleasanton Middle School which landed in third place.

Hart qualified to compete in the Junior Nationals at Disneyland in March. The squad's next competition will be Dec. 10 in Tracy.

Hart's cheer team members are:
Cassidee Banks
Kiera Begley
Kailyn Coleman
Mackenzie Curran
Shauna Dunlap
Jenna Edsen
Karina Galvez
Morgan Greenup
Kiley Grundstrom
Kelly Jefferies
Carly Marceau
Katie Reding
Allie Sanchez
Anika Simons
Noelle Viscaina

The girls are coached by Nancy Jefferies.

Congratulations to Hart's hard-working and talented cheerleaders!
