KENILWORTH, NJ – Allegra Wyrick, a senior at David Brearley High School, is one of 21 cheerleaders selected from around the state to compete on the 2017-2018 NJ Cheerleading and Dance Coaches Association All-State Team.

More than 70 cheerleading and dance finalists entered to join the prestigious team.

“We have watched her grow up through the rec cheerleading program, so this was a very special day,” Wyrick’s cheerleading coach, Kimberly McGowan, said. “[Assistant Coach] Amy Burke and I are so proud of her.”

This is the 5th time in 15 years that a female student-athlete from David Brearley has been selected to join the team. Wyrick joins alumni Stephania Montoya, Toria Strigler, Haley Tekula, Faith Kelly, Gianna Lospinoso and Olivia Siargusa.

“While I truly believe all of our cheerleaders, past and present, are exceptionally talented, it is a credit to Allegra and her hard work to have succeeded in the rigorous process,” McGowan said.

Wyrick was honored at the 2017 All-State Team Brunch on Sunday, Dec. 10. She will be further honored at an upcoming Board of Education meeting and her photo will join the display of David Brearley’s other All-State athletes.
