Local cheer team heads to Florida for all-star competition

Local cheer team heads to Florida for all-star competitionMembers of the Ridgecrest Coyote Cheer team will head to Florida for the March 9 International All-Star Championship, the Universal Cheer Association-sanctioned competition held at the ESPN Sports Center in Orlando. The 12 members placed first in their division at a cheerleading competition last November. Since December they have been raising money for the upcoming trip. “I am sure by now you have probably bought a cookie or two from a group of girls asking for help getting to Florida,” said Karan Darley of the Coyotes. “These girls have been standing in front of the stores in the cold, and even the rain, raffling prizes, wrapping presents and selling baked goods. With all of their hard work and the community’s generous support, the girls have earned their way to Florida.” On behalf of the girls and their families, Darley thanked “all who supported us in making this dream a reality.” — Courtesy photo
