Island youth spread their spirit at camp / Cheer

Whidbey Island youngsters displayed their spirit at the Coupeville High School Cheer Camp Sunday, Oct. 6.

Thirty-five kids from Whidbey Island took part, learning a dance, cheer and stunts that will be performed at halftime of the Wolves’ homecoming game Friday, Oct. 18, with South Whidbey.

The campers were treated to pizza delivered by Coupeville mascot Wilfred the Wolf.

Although it was a Coupeville cheer clinic, the Wolves’ coach BreAnna Boon invited students from kindergarten through the eighth grade from the entire island to participate.

“Sports are supposed to bring people together, and, especially as cheerleaders, we want to show the whole island that CHS cheerleaders are leaders in and out of uniform and in and out of just our small town,” she said. “I can’t wait to have everyone watch their performance homecoming night.”

Coupeville cheer captain Ja’tary Hoskins said, “To see all the children light up when we taught them cheer, dances and stunts was the absolute best part.”

Roxanne Moon added, “My daughter Harper enjoyed it a lot. As a parent, I was very pleased with the cheer coach and cheerleaders keeping the young girls productive and on task. They were very nice and professional.”
