On Sunday, April 11. 2021, the North Hunterdon High School Varsity Cheerleaders were awarded the State Title of “All Girl Medium Varsity (16-19 athletes) Champions.”
A percentage of the team gathered at local restaurant, Riley and Jakes, to watch the virtual announcement and results of the NJCDCA State Cheerleading Competiton on April 11.
The season began outdoors in the grass fields of North Hunterdon High School in August of 2020. Over the course of the last eight months, these athletes overcame losing practice space, two COVID-19 shut downs, snow day closures, and numerous other challenges to inevitably take the schools first ever State Title.
Under the new leadership of Head Coach, and former North Hunterdon Cheerleader, Noreen Stansberry, and Assistant Coach Nicole Senneca, these atheles proved stronger and more resilient than any lockdown, virus, or mandate.
On Monday, April 19, the State Champions will get their moment of glory as they receive the traditional State Champion Police, Fire, and Rescue Escort Parade starting at 7:00 PM at Annandale Square and ending at North Hunterdon High School parking lot at 7:45 p.m. where they will be received by the cheers of family, friends, and fans, alike!!
CONGRATULATIONS to these talented student-athletes and their dedicated coaches on the title and on not giving up in the face of adversity! Where there is a will, there is a way! GO NORTH!!
