North Port: Cheerleading Roundup (NPHS, ISNP, NP Mustangs)

Share with Friends:

It has been a busy and successful season for North Port cheerleading for local high school and youth league teams across the city. Here is a roundup of recent results.

The North Port Bobcats

The North Port Bobcats recently booked their trip to the National High School Cheerleading Championship in Orlando, thanks to their performance at their regional tournament where they finished eighth earlier this month. Nationals will take place in February at Walt Disney World Resort.

The Imagine Sharks

Imagine High School also put on an impressive performance at Regionals, placing third in its category and earning a spot on the podium in just its second year of competitive cheerleading. Many of Imagine’s athletes had no cheer experience before joining the Sharks, so placing at Regionals was a major accomplishment.

“We’re a really new team, so it felt great,” Sharks head coach Kristina Stoltzfus said.

Imagine will go on to cheer in two more competitions in January including FHSAA regionals.

The North Port Mustangs

North Port’s age group teams recently wrapped up their competitive cheer seasons and they have some impressive results to show from it.

The Mustangs’ Pee Wee squad, which consists of athletes between the ages of 9 and 12, won first place in their category at the Pop Warner National Cheer and Dance Championships, which took place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in early December.

The Mustangs’ Varsity team, which is composed of 11- to 15-year olds, placed third in their category at the same competition. Not only did they snag a spot on the podium, but their routine was also shown live on ESPN.

“I think it was really cool for them to experience that aspect of it,” varsity head coach Catrina Willis said. “There is definitely something different about the atmosphere when you see live cameras there.”

Willis and most of the other varsity coaches relinquished their coaching roles at the end of this competitive cheer season, so it was special for them to go out on a high note. Willis said she expects to see many of this year’s varsity athletes go on to cheer at local high schools.
