Sometimes there really is no place like home.

Sometimes there really is no place like home.

Earlier this month, the Healdton Lady Bulldogs cheer squad got to enjoy the comforts of home as the Universal Cheer Association and its representatives came to Healdton High School for a special camp.

While at the camp, a total of six Lady Bulldogs cheerleaders were given the honor of being named All-American selections.

Diamond Hickman, Brynli Tucker, Chole Purdue, Haley German, Hannah Benton and Erin Kelley were all given the title of All-American cheerleaders.

With this award, these six Lady Bulldogs cheerleaders will now have the choice of getting to decide where they would like to perform later this year in various parades across the United States with a couple of options available overseas as well.

“All of these girls worked so hard to earn All-American status,” Healdton coach Robin Needham said. “I’m so proud of them for their hard work and how they used their skills to earn this honor.”

During the short camp, the Lady Bulldogs were treated to being coached by representatives by UCA, as they learned new cheers and dances for the upcoming football and basketball seasons. 

The Healdton cheerleaders then competed for All-American status on the last day of the camp.
