Dublin High School Cheerleading Wins 1st and Fallon 4th at USA Regionals Event

November 6, 2011

While most of Dublin was sleeping this Sunday morning, Dublin High School and Fallon Middle School cheerleaders were up early preparing for the United Spirit Association (USA) Regionals Event held at Washington High School in Fremont, California. Dublin High School took first place against a competitive field of Varsity Show Cheer Intermediate division teams including San Ramon Valley High School, Leland, Heritage and Monta Vista High School. Each of these school teams qualified for Nationals last year. OneDublin.org was there to capture the Dublin High and Fallon Middle School cheerleading routines on HD video for the benefit of late risers.

Fallon Middle School’s cheerleading team put on a strong performance and walked away with fourth place in the Jr. High Show Cheer Novice division, competing against seven middle schools including Pleasanton Middle School, Hart, Burlingame and Excelsior Middle School. The Dublin High and Fallon Middle School cheerleading programs are tightly linked, with several families having daughters on both teams. Both teams also receive strong support from the Dublin parent community.

There has been an ongoing debate about whether or not cheerleading is a sport or an activity. On this Sunday morning it was clear that cheerleading is a highly competitive and athletic sport that requires teamwork, skill and lots of hard work.

Marci Scanlan, Special Events Director – United Spirit Association (USA), “The kids are here to try to qualify for our high school Spirit Nationals held in Anaheim this March. USA has been around for over 50 years and started with kids mainly participating at high school sporting events and now has become a sport in itself. They are athletes and are having a great time.”
