The William S. Hart High School junior varsity and varsity cheerleading teams took first place in the Winter Spirit Classic Sunday at Canyon High School.

This competition qualifies the teams for other cheerleading competitions including Best of the West and King of the Bleachers Nationals. The JV team, through a raffle, also earned registration for the California Cheer and Dance State Championship.

The JV team competes in the Junior Varsity Intermediate Division and the varsity team competes in the Large Varsity Advanced Division.

In these divisions, the girls competed with numerous teams from across the valley, including Valencia High School and West Ranch High School.

"I would have to say West Ranch was (our biggest competition) because of their tumbling and also because their head coach used to be our head coach at Hart," freshman Katie Knudsen said.

In addition to their competition, the girls also faced constantly changing routines during the week leading up to the Winter Spirit Classic due to injuries.

"We really had to push through the injuries and hardships to be on the top," senior Rachel Abernathy said.

Despite their injuries, the girls remain positive and believe that the preparation for the competition allowed them to grow as a team.

"I think we have learned to work together and depend on each other more since the beginning of the year," said varsity captain Stephanie Harris, a senior.

Since the varsity team had an undefeated season last year, winning their first competition was a rewarding way to start off the new competition season.

The varsity girls look to the future as they start off their season in hopes of once more having an undefeated team.

"(We want) to win nationals and be on our way to again become the undefeated team that we worked so hard for," senior Christine Padilla said.

Noelle Chadbourne is a Hart High School student.
