MONTCLAIR, NJ - The Montclair Recreation Pop Warner Bulldogs feted their 2015 season participants during the 7th annual Bulldogs Awards Banquet held on February 6, at Montclair State University. More than 160 boys and girls received awards and certificates for academic and athletic success.

The highlight of the night was the celebration of the Mitey Mites cheerleading team's December trip to the National Pop Warner Cheer competition at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The ladies (ages 7-9) were the first Montclair Recreation Bulldogs cheerleading team to make it to the national competition.

The night was capped off with a question and answer segment with five Montclair High School football and cheerleading alumni – all now college graduates – fielding questions from parents and kids about managing their time between studies and participating in sports. The MHS alumni were Amber Rock, Lindsey Lombardi, Christian Dorsey, Drew Jenkins, and Shane Dorsey, all from the class of 2010.

The Bulldogs look forward to another exciting year in 2016. Registration for the season begins Monday May 2.
