The Dawson County Competitive Cheer team participated in the John’s Creek Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 6 and walked away with its fourth victory of the season to remain undefeated on the year.
“I think we competed very well after having to replace an athlete that got injured,” said senior Nicole Mulkey. “We still pulled together as a team and were able to come out with a first place win to remain undefeated.”
Having lost Hanna Davenport to a shoulder injury, the Lady Tigers fought through the adversity and challenges to put together another first-place performance. This time around they nailed all three elements of the pyramid portion of the routine, a feat that has eluded them all season.
“We have been battling injuries all season and having to rework our routine continuously. We have not put the same routine on the mat two weeks in a row,” said Coach Kim Fleming. “I am pleased with our performance today. We still have not hit our best routine that we are capable of performing. Never want to peak too early.”
With only two meets remaining in the regular season, the win continues to build on the team’s momentum through the season and puts them in excellent position as they head to the South Forsyth Classic on Oct. 20.
