While the Class of 2019 has officially left the halls of Healdton High School, the newest class of seniors and upperclassmen are already making their mark for the Lady Bulldogs cheer squad.

Recently, several members of the HHS cheer team were able to earn All-American status during the annual UCA cheer camp, which was held on the campus of Healdton High School. 

Seniors Chole Perdue and Heavenly Kirkpatrick along with sophomore Brynli Tucker and freshman Gracie Matthews were each given the honor of being named All-American during the camp.

“Being selected as an All-American is a great honor for these young ladies,” Healdton coach Robin Needham said. “These girls were chosen because they exemplified showmanship, poise, technique or crowd leading skills. All of the girls were nominated by the UCA cheerleaders that were leading and directing the camp.”

Members of the high school and junior high cheer squads attended the camp, where both teams learned new dances, stunts and cheers for the upcoming football season.

The girls who were chosen at the camp for All-American status received a medal and are given the chance to perform at a New Year’s Day parade in 2020. 

Healdton will be returning multiple girls this season to the team.
