Falcon Cheerleading ...
STA Cheer receives Leadership Award at Camp.

    The Cheer Squad is coached by Catherine Messenger and Kathryn King Treadwell. Cheerleading starts in March with tryouts, practicing for camp begins April. We practice 3-4 times a week building up to camp, which we attended June 13th-16th, in Destin, Florida. We were extremely proud of the girls for the hard work they put into it, and they received 1st place Cheer, 2nd place Extreme Routine, 2nd Place chant, and 1st Place Overall Champs. Also this squad received the leadership award which is bigger than any trophy. This award is voted on by the campers of the other teams to which team stood out the most and exhibited leadership qualities.
    After Camp the team begins to prepare for our football season and competition season. They learn a two minute and thirty-second routine, which they will use to compete at the local competition, Twist and Shout, as well as our Regional and State Competition. We will be competing Large Non-Tumbling Division at UCA regional and State competitions. At this competition we hope to receive a National Bid to The National High School Competition in Orlando in February for the first time.
     This year’s squad includes seniors: Raeghen Henry, Alyssa Finch, Hannah Matise, and Anna Santangelo; Juniors: Traci Carollo, Bailey Cavallero, Maci Collins, Maddie Goings, Angie G'sell, Isabel Oliva, Hunter Sandage, and Brittany Templet. Sophmores: Maddie Henry, Caroline Ingraffia, Lily Inman, and Alexis Lee. Freshman: Paige Bankston, Lani Dibenedetto, Kate Graziano, Madison Loria, Lauren McNeal, and Cadyn Reed.
Starlettes ...

    The Starlettes are coached by Olivia Marceaux and Michelle Chauvin is the squad sponsor. The 2016-17 squad includes Captain Londyn Daniel, seniors Abigail Collins and Emily Drago, Juniors Rachel Pistorius and Marla Bailey, Sophomores Kylie Ruiz, Bailey Fugarino, Katie Amos, and Mackie Sandage, and Freshmen Kylie Baudean, Darah Haidet, and Madeline Pistorius.
    Starlette tryouts are traditionally held in late March or early April. If we bring a home routine to camp, dancers will practice 3-4 times a week in preparation for competition. This year, we attended camp June 3rd-6th in New Orleans. This particular camp is extremely competitive, as most Louisiana teams that attend nationals are present. I was very proud of the way the girls presented themselves. Honors included 5 All American awards, drill down ribbons, 18 superior ribbons, recognition within master classes, and a superior trophy, which is our ticket to the National Dance Team Competition in Orlando this coming February.
    After camp, the girls have a brief break. Summer practices will begin mid July and occur until the start of school in August. This helps the team begin to prepare for the upcoming football season. During football season, the girls attend and perform at all home and away games. Whether it's on the sideline cheering or on the field dancing at halftime, the girls can always be seen cheering on the Falcons!
    Dancers will typically learn nationals choreography before the month of November. We compete in the jazz and hip hop categories. Each routine is 2 minutes long and consists of elite skills specific to each style of dance. Last year, the Starlettes finished 11th in hip hop and 8th in jazz in the small varsity division. This year, we hope to break top 5 in both styles.
     Outside of football and nationals, the Starlettes also perform at basketball and baseball games! Our true passion is supporting all things STA!
