In their final victory cheer, the Hackett Lady Hornets sis-boom-bahed their way into the final Top 6 teams at State. Held in Hot Springs on December 21, Hackett set the cheer bar high in their first time ever to compete. Overall, the Lady Hornets ended tying for second with Jessieville in the prelims which helped in paving the way to State. “We didn’t bring home a trophy,” explained Coaches Courtney Sangster and Katey Wyckoff. “But when you look at all we went through to get to State and how hard the girls worked, we will take Top 6 in the state any day!”
For the third year in a row, Rivercrest ended up taking the Champions title while Waldron secured Runner-Up.“I can’t tell you how proud we are of them. We are excited about what the future holds with Hackett Cheer. We are hoping this competition season has sparked some interest.” The Lady Hornets will finish with basketball season in February and then turn around and hold tryouts in March.
