Santa Barbara High Competitive Cheer Team Earns Finals Appearance

ANAHEIM — Despite another 4.1 earthquake, the Santa Barbara High School Competitive Cheer Team, along with hundreds (maybe 1,000) other high school cheerleaders, dancers and mascots continued on with the annual USA Nationals Spirit Competition at the Anaheim Convention Center on Saturday.

The SBHS Dons Competitive Cheer Team moved forward from Prelims to Finals to be held on Sunday afternoon.

The SBHS Comp Cheer Team are back-to-back USA National Champions (2012 and 2013) in the Super Varsity Show Cheer Novice Division. This year, the team challenged itself and moved up to the Super Varsity Show Cheer Intermediate Division, which is a more difficult level.

The student athletes have worked hard all school year training for this competition, while at the same time cheering on their fellow athletes in boys basketball, girls basketball and volleyball. While other sports have their season, school cheerleading teams that also compete are an all-season, year-round sport. This annual competition is the SBHS Cheer Team’s “CIF” finals, and they have trained hard to meet this challenge.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
