Macon East’s JV and Varsity cheer squads attended UCA’s cheerleading camp for AISA schools the week of July 9-12.  The annual camp held at Huntingdon College is always an exciting week of learning new material and stunts for the upcoming season as well as evaluations from the staff and end of the week competitions.  Three Macon East seniors (Annslee Gourlay, Hannah Paik, and Sarah Krasnowiecki) were selected as AISA All-Stars and will represent their squad at the all-star football and basketball games. Anne Auston Wright and Abby Wilson received UCA’s coveted “Pin It Forward” honors from the camp staff for their leadership, spirit, and motivation.  Four Macon East Varsity cheerleaders (Kayla Boroff, Spencer Lindemood, Hannah Paik, and Taylor Anne Surles) were selected as UCA All-American Cheerleaders and will have the opportunity to participate in the New Year’s Day Parade in London.  Throughout the Monday through Thursday camp, the squads learned a variety of cheers, chants, and sideline dances to take back to school and cheer on the Knights in the 2018-2019 season.  The Junior Varsity squad received blue superior ribbons all week and a trophy for Outstanding Large Squad.  Macon East’s Varsity excelled in Thursday’s final competitions bringing home 1st place in Cheer, 2nd place in Sideline Chant, 2nd place in Band Dance, and the Camp Champs Runner-up trophy for medium squads.  Under the leadership of Katie Miller and Kathy Loomis, the squads are looking forward to an outstanding year.
