A High Spirited Season for Levittown's Cheer Teams

March 09, 2018

Varsity cheerleading teams from both Division Avenue High School and General Douglas MacArthur High School had an impressive season this year, taking top spots in various competitions and recently making their way to the Universal Cheerleading Association's National Competition in Orlando, Florida, where MacArthur earned ninth place in their national division out of 37 teams across the country.

A High Spirited Season for Levittown's Cheer Teams 001Division's team under the guidance of coaches CristenRonzo and Liz Lynch and MacArthur's team under the direction of Jacqueline Day, worked hard to perfect their routines through daily practices together. They also cheered each other on at competitions.

At the end of January, Division Avenue High School in the Small D2 category and MacArthur High School in the Small D1 category, cheered at the Section 8 competition held at Division Avenue High School, where both teams placed first in their respective divisions. With their impressive scores, the teams continued to be successful in other competitions, qualifying them both for the Nassau County Championship. Both high schools were in the top 50 percent of teams in each division to qualify for counties.

During the Nassau County Championships at Wantagh High School, both cheer teams came out victorious, landing spots in the top five. MacArthur earned fourth place and Division took home fifth place in their respective divisions.

A High Spirited Season for Levittown's Cheer Teams 002To qualify for the UCA's National Competition, both teams participated in the UCA's Regional Competition back in December and scored high enough to continue to Nationals in Florida. Nationals consisted of more than 700 of the top junior varsity and varsity cheer teams from throughout the nation competing to become National Champions. The two teams created t-shirts together that read "One Town, Two Teams, Same Dream," and were thrilled when MacArthur earned ninth place in the competition.

"Just making it to the finals was the proudest moment I've had as a coach," said MacArthur High School cheer coach Jacqueline Day. "This is a brand new team because they lost 12 seniors last year so there are a lot of rookies that went to Nationals for the first time this year. Having them all come together and seeing all their hard work pay off was just amazing. Being ranked ninth in the Medium D2 varsity division was just the icing on the cake."
