Saturday, January 25, 2014 - by Bob Beavers

Atlanta - The Dalton State competition cheer squad captured their first ever event Saturday at the Georgia World Congress Center, next to the Georgia Dome.

Roadrunner Coach Robyn Newell said the competition allows the squad to “learn from our scores” as the team prepares for the Cheer Sports Nationals.

The Feb. 14-16 event is said to be the largest all star cheer event in the south. It will also be held at the Georgia World Congress Center.

“Our competitive team grew closer today as we competed for the first time,” said Newell. “My voice is horse after yelling with excitement while watching them execute and hit their pyramid with pride.”

Cheer team members participating in the Saturday event were Emily Ayers, Mariel Broadrick, Jordan Collins, Arika Culp, Austin Culp, Katie Goolsby, Rachel Lockhart, Xavier Martin, Maci Price, Manuel Montelongo, Kayla Webb, Austin West, Kristen Skiffen, and manager Jordan Sattler.

“I could see how strong Dalton State cheer is as the squad walked away with their trophy, medals, and banner,” said Newell. “We are so thankful for the tremendous amount of support we have received as we perform.”
