Prep preview / Oak Harbor cheer

Eleven returning letter winners will give the Oak Harbor High School cheer team a veteran presence this fall.

Back are Makayla Benavides, Kayli Benedetto, Issis Foster-Suyat, Jada Jones, Chelsea Lonborg, Brittany McCollough, Kalayna McIntyre, Asya Pressley, Morgan Roundy, Annaliza Toliniu and Valerie Wylie.

The Wildcats have been productive leading into the new sports season.

So far they have volunteered for the Relay for Life, Ragnar Relay and gravity races; put on a youth stunting and tumbling clinic; and excelled at summer camp.

At the National Cheerleading Camp, Oak Harbor won a spirit stick award, leadership award, and best band chant and cheer award.

The goals for the Wildcats moving forward, according to cheer coach Jasmin Jones, are “achieve more advanced stunts and tumbling skills; have higher jumps, fun cheers (and) great routines; and to overall become a stronger team during our football season.”

The Wildcats also can’t wait for the winter competition season “to show off all our hard work,” according to Jones.
