Taking advantage of performing in their home town, Borgia and Washington cheerleading squads captured top awards at the Missouri Cheerleading Coaches Association St. Louis Regional event held Wednesday at Borgia.

“This was our fourth year to host this event,” said Borgia Coach Sandi Gildehaus. “The event ran extremely smooth. We had huge crowds for both sessions.”

Borgia captured two first-place awards in the regional. Borgia’s varsity squad won the 3A Large Division title and the junior varsity squad won the JV Small Division trophy.

Borgia’s captains are Shanon Mohesky and Emily Holdmeier. Squad members are Andrea Feldmann, Tess Killmeade, Hanna Michels, Brooke Blythe, Sara Monroe, Brooke Schrader, Abby Wurdack, Carrie Leach, Jill Kampschroeder, Claire Korba, Rachel Frederick, Jamie Gentges, Alexis Roberts, Holly Brinker, Erika Garbs, Darrien Knight, Abbey Hedrick and Bonnie Eckelkamp. Coaches are Gildehaus and Michelle Mueller.

“Our division was packed with talent and I knew we would have to hit our routine to do well,” Gildehaus said. “We had a few pretty rough practices before competition so I was so proud of them for pulling together and fighting for this routine. There is always a bit of added pressure knowing that the event is at Borgia. We want to do well in front of that huge Borgia crowd.”

The Borgia JV roster was not available as of press time.

Washington won the 4A Small division title and the junior varsity team placed second to Borgia in the JV Small Division.

Washington varsity team members are Jenna Riegel, Jenna Rose Backs, Rebecca Lowes, Carli Reed, Brittany Crismon, Emily Stricker, Lauren Lenzen, Taylor Heldt, Courtney Turner, Monica Eckelkamp, Desiree Hofstetter, Kristen Mittler, Kaylynne Luck, Clarissa Gurnow, Morgan Engel, Jamie Sickmann and Haily Griesenauer.

“The girls have worked really hard all summer and they had an awesome performance,” said Washington Coach Risa Thorburg. “We’re looking forward to competing at state.”

Gildehaus praised the Washington team.

“Washington did so great,” said Gildehaus. “Since the event is at Borgia, all my team members are working, but when Washington takes the floor, all the Borgia cheerleaders stop their jobs to fill the gym to watch. We are so proud of our town and I know both teams want to be there to support each other. Congratulations to the Washington cheerleaders and their fabulous coaches.”
