It’s already been a good year for David Crockett High School Cheer.

Right, seven David Crockett High School cheerleaders were recently named All-Americans. In addition to the team’s accomplishments at the UCA camp, the seven All-Americans are also given the opportunity to travel overseas to be a part of one of two international New Year’s Day parades in London or Rome.

Crockett’s cheerleaders participated in the Universal Cheerleaders Association cheer camp this year. Seven DCHS cheerleaders were named All-American Cheerleaders.

The Pioneer team received third place in overall varsity, first place in rally with big stunt, fourth place in cheer, and fourth place in sideline.

Overall, there were 22 teams, 18 Varsity teams, and 355 cheerleaders competing.

The seven students named All-Americans were Breanna Mauk, Jessica Aiken, Savannah Lands, Sydnee Hill, Zoe Chapman, Brooke Dinnes and JD Waldrop.

Cheerleading squads that attend a Universal Cheerleaders Association camp can nominate squad members to try out for the honor of being named a UCA All-American.

When an athlete becomes an All-American cheerleader, he or she is invited to perform at special events across the country and the world such as the London New Year’s Day Parade or the Rome New Year’s Day Parade.
