The Winner Area cheer team placed second at the Spearfish Invitational on Sept. 10.
“This was a huge win for us,” said coach Val Ewing. There were five Class AA schools there and to compete with those schools at that level is just what Coach Novotny and Coach Ewing are looking for. Winner beat all of the A schools,” said the coach.
“We have never gone to this competition and even though it was a really long day it was great to get to see some of the teams from the far west side of the state,” added Ewing.
The Winner cheer performs at the half time of the homecoming football game on Sept. 21.
Winner Area dance took third place in Spearfish.
Coach Cyndy DeMers said the team scored their highest in the kick category and performed their best routines in pom and hip hop.
Spearfish won first in dance with Rapid City Stevens, 2nd; Winner, 3rd and St. Thomas More, 4th.
