MILO On July 21, a group of cheerleaders and their coach from Penquis Valley, attended the NCA cheering camp at Husson College.

At the session there were about 400 girls from Maine and New Hampshire in attendance. Attending camp were Sonya Salley, Desirie Hogan, Kristen Lee, Paige Harmon, ITiffany Bishop, Amanda Martin, and JHeather Donaghy. While at camp they worked on stunting, chants and dance routines. Several of the girls were involved with leadership workshops.

The girls earned the Directors Award, which was chosen by the staff. The girls were noted for being a team of co-operative, spirited and active participants at camp. Paige Harmon, Kristen Lee, Tiffany Bishop, Heather Donaughy and Amanda Martin were nominated for the All-American team.

Twenty-five girls were picked for the All-American team from one hundred nominees. Kristen and Heather were chosen for the All-American team. All nominees were invited to participate in events with the NCA cheerleaders at the Orange Bowl and the Hula Bowl, for the upcoming year.

Coach Murano was very proud of the great team effort put forth by all the girls. Earlier in the summer, the cheerleaders held a summer clinic for grades K-5. They all worked hard and the young cheerleaders enjoyed themselves. They hope to hold a Saturday clinic later in the fall for the younger girls.

The nominees will be doing fund raising to go to the Orange Bowl in Florida . For any information on the fund raising, please contact Sherry Bishop at 943- 0993. Coach Murano looks forward to the coming season with this hard working, talented group.
