Wildcats pile up awards at team camp / Cheer

It was an award-winning weekend for the Oak Harbor High School cheer team at the Universal Cheerleaders Association Camp July 28-30 at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma.

Three Wildcats earned All-American honors: Shyanne King, Issis Foster and Asya Pressley.

Three others, Makynzie Curtis, Brooke Whelpley and Aspen Covert-Kemper, were nominated for the award.

King and Foster also received the Pin It Forward Award, given to those “who set a good example to why American needs cheerleaders,” according to coach Kimberly Schmal.

Jayda Jones was honored as the camp’s Best Jumper.

King, Curtis and Whelpley were selected to receive an application to tryout to work for UCA.

As a team, the Wildcats finished first in Game Day Cheer, second in Sideline Routine and third in Extreme Routine.

Fifteen team members and coaches Schmal and Sarah Reinstra attended the camp, which focused on chants, cheers, jumps, stunts and spirit.

“The Oak Harbor High School cheerleaders represented the school extremely well and are looking forward to their upcoming season cheering on the Wildcats,” Schmal said.
