JV and varsity pom teams are competing in their second competition of the year this upcoming weekend at Heritage High School. After a huge success at Highkick with junior varsity receiving fifth place and varsity receiving second, the teams are anxious to get out there and preform what they’ve been working very hard on.
“Going into our first competition, we thought we’d do well, but after getting second place, the best we’ve ever scored at Highkick, we have high expectations for Regionals,” senior captain Hope Harnois said,
Over the past few years, the DHS Pompon Program has significantly improved, receiving the best places in DHS Pompon history.
“Coming onto junior varsity my freshman year,” junior Hannah Robison said, “I never thought the program would be where it’s at now. Now being on varsity, I can see the progress first hand. A few years ago, going into regionals the only goal was to make it to states because they didn’t always make it. Now, the goal is to try and compete on the level we should be on and failure really isn’t an option.”
Both teams are very excited and optimistic to see how they end up placing in this competition and are determined to work even harder to place high at states.
