Competitive cheer is a tough sport. Long hours practicing, the chance for injury, and the difficulty of stunts are all something cheerleaders face. Local cheerleaders Alyssa Day, Arissa and Skyleigh Baker all go through these difficulties as part of the Premiere Athletics Cali Sharks team. All of their hard work is geared towards competitions held allover the country.
Last weekend their hard work paid off in their own backyard. The Cali Sharks, a Junior Level Two team, earned 1st place Grand Champions at Cheer Sport in Knoxville TN on on Saturday 1-27-18. Even more impressive is that these young athletes earned a bid to the World Cheer Summit to be held in Orlando, Florida.
