| March 9, 2016

On Saturday, March 5, just after returning from the previous weekend’s competition in Maryland, the Mohonasen varsity cheerleaders traveled to Syracuse to compete in the inaugural New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) state-level cheerleading championship.

The team was able to advance to the competition after winning the D2 large division at sectional championships. At the statewide competition, the team competed in a morning preliminary session and successfully advanced to the final championship round. The team was able to secure a fifth-place ranking overall in the D2 large division.

In addition to the team’s ranking, MHS senior Amy DeMento was recognized individually and presented the award for Best Sportsmanship.

Congratulations to the team on their multiple local titles and national win this season!
