In the competitive cheerleading world, the two-day Missouri Cheerleading Coaches Association St. Louis Regional event at Washington High School was nothing less than epic.

The St. Louis Regional, which has been held at Borgia in recent years, got much bigger this year with the addition of the teams which had competed in the Southeast Regional. That event was called off this year.

“I made the decision to move the event to Washington High School due to the large number of teams competing this year and the need to make it a two-day event,” said Borgia Coach Sandi Gildehaus, who also was the event coordinator. “The entire Southeast Regional had to be canceled due to low attendance, so all those teams came to us.”

The change in format and location was good, Gildehaus said.

“The two-day event went extremely well,” said Gildehaus. “The location was great with lots of positive feedback. We’re hoping to be able to host it again next year.”

Gildehaus stated Washington High School was an excellent host site and partner for the event.

“A huge thank you to Washington High School Athletic Director Bill Deckelman,” Gildehaus said. “He was great to work with and so supportive of all the cheerleaders. A bigger thank you to the Washington custodial staff. Anything we needed, they were right there to help. It was so great.”

Overall, Gildehaus said it was a great turnout by teams and fans, especially from area schools.

“We had a great turnout of fans to support all the local teams,” Gildehaus said. “It was great to be able to see Pacific, Union, St. Clair, Borgia and Washington cheerleaders all cheering each other on. Cheer has come a long way in the area. You would be amazed at what these teams can do. They are so fun to watch.”

Large crowds watched both days as schools competed for regional titles and the chance to advance to the state event Oct. 4-5 at the Hearnes Center in Columbia.

In action Tuesday, division winners were:

• Junior High — Poplar Bluff won with Sikeston second and Winfield third.
