Georgia All State cheerleaders announced
Kayla Maxwell and Katie Strickland of Whitewater High School and Ali Church of McIntosh High School were recently selected as an All-State cheerleader at the Georgia Cheerleading Coaches’ Association competition held at Columbus State University on Aug. 14.
They were nominated by their cheer coaches Kelly Stanford (Whitewater) and Shannon Bednarowski (McIntosh). The girls competed against 100 other senior cheerleaders from high school programs across Georgia in the first portion of the competition based on the scholarship application. Competing Saturday at Columbus State University were the 40 cheerleaders selected as finalists.
The finalists were judged in an interview and then presented a two-minute routine which showcased their cheering skills. The sixteen All-State cheerleaders were announced on site after the completion of the competition.
The All-State cheerleading squad will be presented at the conclusion of the GHSA Cheerleading State Championships to be in Columbus, Ga. on Nov. 13. At that time, the Georgia Cheerleader of the Year scholarship winner, the top scorer in the All-State competition, will be announced, and all scholarships will be presented.
