Congratulations to the 2014 cheerleaders selected for the varsity and junior varsity teams at Dixon High School!
Four days of tryout clinics were held last week, with candidates for the 2014 Dixon High School Cheerleading Program learned dance choreography, a cheer, a sideline chant and jumps.
Cheerleaders were selected by a panel of judges based on their performance of the choreography, technique, spirit and enthusiasm.
The junior varsity team is: Erin Corbett; Emily Ziegler; Hayley Hagen; Kendra Atkinson; Haidynn Dahlin; Arianna LaCome; Alyssa Azevedo; Heather Drayton; Sara Fitzgerald; Merissa Ray; Lexi Riedel; Ciana Perez; Carly Dougherty; Shelby Crouch; Ashlyn Lee; Alyssa Ponce; Angelica Gonzales; Jenna Hayes.
The varsity team is: Hannah Drayton; Carissa Garrity; Aleesa Perez; Chelsea Hagen; Desiree Cox; Clarissa Marroquin; Ericka Villa; Tiffany Barton; Daniela Olivarez; Brittany Eliason; Raichel Balestra; Brianna Eliason; Julie Tvrdik; Sierra Faulkner; Mallory Elliott; Kimmy Lubaton; Hope Garcia; Alina Castillo.
Now it’s time for the cheerleaders to prepare for the upcoming season by fund raising for the cost of their uniforms, accessories and cheerleading camp, while preparing a routine to be judged during their summer camp through the Universal Cheerleaders Association, held at UC Davis in July.
Last year’s teams won several awards for their superior performances, and invitations to perform in the Pro Bowl, Capital One Bowl and London’s New Year’s Day Parade.
This year the coaches have even higher goals for the DHS teams.
The first DHS Cheer fundraiser to kick off the season is sales of Fun Pasta!
Fun Pasta is shaped like the holidays, sports, collegiate team logos and more. There are a wide variety of shapes that appeal to everyone!
The link for online sales is: www.funpastafundraising.com/shop/DixonHighSchoolCheer.
All online orders will be shipped directly to the customer in just a few days. Proceeds from this fundraiser will help cheerleaders pay for camp and camp attire.
Community support is much appreciated as some cheerleaders have extraordinary financial circumstances. Any assistance, large or small, is very much appreciated.
