Since last week, the Dons Competition Cheer Team took first place in its show cheer division defeating a total of ten schools and the stunt team took first in its division now defeating eight schools.
“Today’s and last week’s wins are a testament to these athletes,” commented SBHS Athletic Director Joe Chenoweth. “These dedicated athletes work hard to master their techniques and it shows.”
“Though the team qualified last week, we came to Agoura prepared to compete hard and win,” said Head Cheer Coach Jenn Lemons. “Now we need to prepare for CheerPros next week and continue training for Nationals.”
Santa Barbara High School Dons are defending regional champions and the current nationals champion for its division.
