Hat trick of prizes for Bristol Starlight
IT’S three cheers (and a lot more) for the Bristol Starlight cheerleaders who came away with a hat trick of prizes from a competition in Newport.
Youngsters aged three to 11 attend the classes in Bromley Heath. The older competition squad, aged nine to 11, got first prize in their age group, won best pom routine out of all the pom groups taking part and gained the Spirit award for the first time.
Deb Denny, who runs the squad, explained: “The Spirit award is always the last trophy of the day to be given out and it’s for the team who cheers and supports all the other teams the most – we’ve never won one of those before.”
This month all three competition teams will be competing in Gloucester; for the majority of the children it will be their first competition.
You can also see the cheerleaders perform at Frenchay Flower Show in July.
