Had you attended Americheers‘ annual Spirit Series that passes through Colorado each year, you would have noticed the excitement in the crowd as 4 time state champion Douglas County Coed took the floor. And while DC Coed did not disappoint with the showcase of their routine, it was Douglas County’s freshman squad that stole the spotlight!!

Coached by Cassandra Salley, DC’s freshman took the floor for their first competition of the year and looked as seasoned as a team that was much further along! As a matter of fact, because of the lack of Freshmen teams in Colorado, DC was placed in a JV division where Coach Salley was simply looking for a clean routine and a respectable placing. Following the results of the competition I would imagine that Coach Salley was delighted with the outcome, as the Freshmen squad took home 1st place, beating out 3 Junior Varsity teams!!

Next weekend Douglas County will be performing in Pueblo, Colorado, and while I’m sure you’ll want to see how well Coed performs, don’t forget to take notice of the Freshman team… those State Champions had to start somewhere!!
