Cheer Team Competes in State Competition

“Blessed are the hearts that bend, they shall never be broken.” (Albert Camus). Griffin High School’s cheerleading program certainly experienced it’s ups and downs in the 2016 competition season. Possessing mental fortitude and the will to continue to persevere, they earned their spot at the GHSA State sectionals. The journey to state was a challenge for both cheerleaders and the coaching staff. At every corner, there was an obstacle to overcome; from injuries to difficulties with music selections, uniform mix ups, and routine challenges.  GHS cheer program tackled every adversity with unmatched resilience. Every week the girls and coaching staff pushed to be a better team, every week the performance improved, the team grew closer, and overall confidence grew. Coming in 2nd place at their first competition of the season and 4th at Regions, the Griffin High School cheerleading team was ecstatic to be headed to sectionals for the first time in four years. Competing at the State level was a dream come true and an honorable accomplishment, but the greatest lesson learned in this experience is: while life will throw you many obstacles, you may be stretched, bent, or even buckle but never ever will you become broken! The best is yet to come for us.
