Sacred Hearts, Saint Louis Cheer Team


AS A MOM MY HEART DROPS WHEN THEY JUMP UP IN THE AIR LIKE THAT. THE SACRED HEART ACADEMY AND SACRED HEART — ST. LOUIS SCHOOL CHEER TEAM OUR NATIONAL CHAMPIONS. THEY CAPTURED IT THIS PAST WEEKEND IN LAS VEGAS. GET THIS, BEATING OUT 72 OTHER SCHOOLS FOR THE CROWN. WE ARE SO EXCITED TO WELCOME THE TEAM TO OUR STUDIO. THEY ARE STANDING BY WITH BRIDGET. I AM SURROUNDED BY A BUNCH OF WINNERS HERE. I WANT TO INTRODUCE YOU GUYS TO TRISTON AND KAYLA. TELL ME WHAT IT TOOK TO GET TO THIS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. IT TOOK A LOT. SACRIFICE, HARD WORK, YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH YOUR TEAM. CHEERLEADING ISN’T JUST YOURSELF. IT IS NOT LIKE WRESTLING. YOU HAVE TO WORK AS A TEAM. WITHOUT THESE PEOPLE I WOULD NOT BE HERE RIGHT NOW. WELL SAID. HOW ABOUT YOU, TELL ME ABOUT THE EFFORT AND HARD WORK YOU ALL DID TO WIN AND BEAT OUT 72 OTHER SCHOOLS. IT TOOK A LOT OF MENTAL COURAGE AND PHYSICAL COURAGE. ONCE YOU GET ONTO THAT MAT, IT IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT GAME THAN WHEN YOU ARE AT PRACTICE. WITHOUT MY TEAM, I WOULD NOT HAVE DONE ALL OF THIS. I WASN’T A CHEERLEADER BUT I WAS CAPTAIN OF MY DANCE TEAM BACK IN THE DAY, A LONG TIME AGO. I UNDERSTAND ALL THE HARD WORK AND EFFORT IT TOOK FOR YOU GUYS. I WANT TO ASK ABOUT THE JUDGES. IF ANYBODY KNOWS WHAT THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP, IT IS VERY COMPETITIVE. WHAT WERE THE JUDGES LOOKING FOR? WE HAD THREE OR FOUR DIFFERENT SECTIONS. THEY ALSO LOOKED FOR YOUR LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY. THE SKILLS YOU DO AND HOW YOU EXECUTE. IF YOU WERE TO DO SOMETHING LIKE A STUNT AND IT WAS LIKE EH, BUT IF YOU EXECUTE NICE AND GOOD, THAT IS WHAT THEY EXECUTE — JUDGE YOU ON. IT IS OUT OF 10. IF WE WERE TO EXECUTE IT NINE OUT OF 10, THAT IS DIFFERENT THAN 10 OUT OF 10. THAT IS ANOTHER POINT WE COULD GET. LOTS OF TECHNICALITIES, RIGHT? HOW DID YOU FEEL AFTER YOU PERFORM THE WINNING ROUTINE AND WINNING THE NATIONAL TITLE? TELL US WHAT THAT WAS LIKE. AFTER WE FINISHED COMPETING AND DID OUR ROUTINE, WE WERE SO HAPPY THAT EVERYTHING HIT AND STUCK. ONCE AWARDS CAME BY, WE WERE JUST SO RILED UP AND GIDDY AND HAPPY WHEN WE WERE GIVEN THE TITLE. WE WERE SO HUMBLED AND THANKFUL FOR THIS ACCOMPLISHMENT. SAFE TO SAY ALL OF YOUR HEARTS WERE BEATING OUT OF YOUR CHEST? YES. I ALSO WANT TO SAY THIS TOO. COMPETITIVE CHEERLEADING IS NOT JUST CHEERING. THERE ARE SO MANY COMPETITIVE ASPECTS. YOU MENTION HOW IT IS A TEAM EFFORT. TELL ME ABOUT WHAT CHEERLEADING MEANS TO YOU. I HAVE BEEN CHEERING FOR THREE YEARS. I LOVE IT SO MUCH. I GET TO BE AROUND THESE PEOPLE EVERY DAY. DOING WHAT I LOVE WITH THE PEOPLE I LOVE JUST MAKES ME HAPPY. WE HAVE GROWN SO MUCH. THE PROGRAM HAS GROWN SO MUCH IN SUCH LITTLE TIME THAT WE HAVE A LOT ON OUR SHOULDERS. BEING RIGHT HERE, SO HAPPY. YOU GUYS DESERVE IT. I WILL STOP TALKING, I WANT TO SHOW YOU GUYS HOW CHAMPIONS ROLE. [APPLAUSE] NICE LANDING. YES! AMAZING. OBVIOUSLY THEY CANNOT SHOW YOU GUYS EVERYTHING, WE WILL SHOW
