RC cheerleaders take sixth

REED CITY — Reed City’s competitive cheer team was in action on Thursday at Northview in a Think Pink competition to benefit breast cancer awareness.

“A couple of teams had to drop out because of the weather,” said Reed City coach Amanda Powers. “Our girls performed and were able to score 30 points over last year’s showing.”

The Coyotes placed sixth.

“Our Round 1 was actually our best round,” Powers said. “The girls really hit their moves. They were crisper and their jumps are improving.”

Reed City participates Saturday at Tri County in both high school and middle school competition.


Evart competed eighth on Saturday at the Farwell Invitational. There were 15 varsity teams competing.

“They had a good round 3,” said Evart coach Marty Pattee. “But it was not a good round 1 or 2. It was tough competition, I will say that. We’re very young.”

Evart is at Marion this Saturday and has its own invitational on Jan. 25.


Pine River took sixth place at Saturday’s Farwell Invitational.

“We performed our best in round 3 that we have all season so far,” said Pine River coach Tiffany Lindquist. “They improved throughout the whole competition the last time. We have some little things to work on. Hopefully we can continue improving.”

Pine River is at Marion on Saturday.

Competitive cheer meets consist of three performance rounds. Round 1 consists of leadership skills and two required jumps. The second round employs various skills and gymnastics while Round 3 deals with stunts and mounts.
