DAVIS, Calif. — The Capuchino Spirit Squad took 1st place in the Co-Ed Varsity Show Cheer division at the USA California Open last night.
Instead of sitting down to watch the Super Bowl, our Capuchino cheerleaders and supporters headed to The Pavilion at UC Davis for the chance to compete among teams across Northern California.
The squad began preparing for this competition last month, however they faced multiple unexpected obstacles to where final adjustments to their routine were made just days before the competition.
“Seeing the team grow and not lose hope when new challenges were thrown their way has been amazing. When Capuchino was called for first place, you could see how happy and excited they were,” said Coach Courtney. “I am very proud of this team as they continue to push to be the best, I am grateful to be their coach. Can’t wait to continue this road to Nationals!”
The Spirit Squad’s next competition will be in March, the team will travel down to Anaheim and compete at the National level for the second year in a row. Be sure to catch their next halftime performance at this Friday’s final basketball Quad.
