York Dukes Cheerleaders competed in the Bolingbrook Invitational Competition on Sunday, December 9, 2012. The day was long, beginning with Junior Varsity taking the floor at 9:00 a.m., the new Power Stunt group at 2:15 p.m. and Varsity not taking the floor until 3:30 p.m. The time did not bother the Dukes armed with pillows and blankets to set up a make shift ‘camp’ in the school’s Field House. They brought sandwiches and snacks to fuel their nutritional needs in between their stunting sessions and cheering practices--something they know very well because they practice 2-3 evenings a week, attend outside tumbling classes, condition in the morning and even practice on Saturdays to be the best they can be.
Their hard work and dedication paid off earning them a 3rd place trophy in Large Varsity and 2nd place medals in Power Stunting.
