Rocky Point High School’s junior varsity squad captured a first-place win at the Long Island Cheerleading Coaches Association Long Island Championship meet.
With this first-place win, the team not only set the bar high for future cheerleading squads but also made school history, as this was the first time a Rocky Point JV team placed first in this contest.
The squad competed against 13 other Long Island teams that had qualified based on prior competitions.
“I am extremely proud of the team and this wonderful accomplishment,” said Amy Agnesini, the district’s director of health, physical education, athletics and intramurals. “These students have been practicing six days a week for three hours at a time to perfect their routines. As such, they are most deserving of this coveted honor.”
