The Cokeville Spirit Squad won first place in the 2A Game Day division at the state spirit competition in Casper on Wednesday, March 6. The girls took second place in the 3A stunt divison.

The Cokeville High School cheer squad headed to state in Casper to compete in the State Spirit Competition on Wednesday, March 6. This year the girls competed in four different events, and were coached by Stace Clark and Laiken Pope.

There is no 1A division at state, so Cokeville competed in the 2A Game Day, 3A Jazz, 3A Hip Hop and 3A Stunt events.

Nineteen Cokeville Lady Panthers competed in Game Day and Stunt, 18 in the Hip Hop and five in the Jazz. Cokeville wowed the audience with their numbers and abilities. Even though the squad came from a small 1A school, these girls came to compete.

The Lady Panthers’ Game Day routine was spot on, and they were rewarded with the 2A State Championship trophy. The girls have worked hard all season cheering on the Panthers and Lady Panthers. This was their time to shine, and that they did.   

The team’s dancing was amazing, just coming up a little short against the much larger schools. Their stunt routine was incredible. It was a close contest between Cokeville and Mountain View but the Lady Buffs edged out the Lady Panthers for the victory in Stunt.
