Overall, Hollywood High Cheer has had a great season with their first competition being held at home and coming in at third place and their second competition held at Torres High School which they ranked at second, and then fighting to bring it home this past Saturday.
This past Sat. May 12, the Hollywood High School Cheerleaders had their most important competition of the season. It was the CIF League Championship and they worked very hard for weeks prior to this upcoming event. The competition was hosted at Birmingham High School for the Division 2 City League which included Crenshaw, Taft, Bell, Venice, Vaughn, Carson, Grant, and Garfield High School alongside Hollywood in order to compete and take home the first place title. At the end of the hard-fought competition, once the judges accumulated the scoresheets, it was decided who the winners were. The first place was given to Taft High School, Hollywood High School received the second place and Garfield High School ended up in third place. It was a very difficult matchup and even though the Hollywood Cheer Team came in second, they are ready for the upcoming season in hopes of claiming that first place title.
The Hollywood Cheerleaders are determined to work harder next season in order to bring home a first-place trophy as said by one of the Hollywood Cheer Captains Melanie Aguilar, “This competition season taught us that even though we thought we worked hard already, we have a long way to go. We made it all the way to CIF League Championships this year which I’m proud of but unfortunately, we couldn’t bring back a first place trophy. This just makes us want to work even harder and get more things done for next year. I think this season was an important milestone for us because we learned and realized what we need to do” Hollywood’s Cheer Team is looking forward to improving and further bettering their coordination and routines in order to compete again next year and earn the title which they’ve worked really hard for.
