The Emery High Cheerleaders competed in the Utah State Cheer Competition on Saturday at Salt Lake Community College.
After qualifying at the Southern Region competition earlier in January, the reigning state champion team went in highly motivated to defend their title. The Spartan cheerleaders competed in the all girl show cheer (non-tumbling), timeout cheer and freestyle categories, bringing home the repeat state title in 3A/4A all girl show cheer (non-tumbling), second place in timeout cheer and fourth place in freestyle.
During the event, Madison Richards was also recognized as a member of the 2020 Utah Cheerleading Academic All-State Team.
The Emery High Cheerleaders’ Spring Showcase will once again take place this year to highlight the hard work and dedication of the Lady Spartans. The event will take place on March 4 at 6 p.m. in the Spartan Center.
