The Custer competitive cheerleading team had a little pep in its step this week after taking fourth place at the Douglas Invitational. The Wildcats faced four other schools in the class “A” competition, earning 109 points, 10 over the fifth place finisher.
According to coach Cherri Block, the team had the fewest number of deductions of any schools in the category.
“Rapid City Stevens had 15 point deductions and we had only two points taken off,” she said. “It’s a huge victory for us.”
Block said the judges were happy with the routine, the girls’ sharp arms, creativity and changes in the routine. They were, however, deducted one point for two girls in the tumbling category.
“We’re deciding if we want to do more tumbling,” Block said. “We’ve improved on our general changes and have made the routine flow better. I’m really happy.”
Block was also happy with the team’s look of confidence.
