PI places 5th in B state cheer event
AUGUSTA, Maine — Hermon High School annexed its fourth straight Class B cheerleading state championship Saturday afternoon with a near-flawless exhibition at the Augusta Civic Center.
The Hawks tallied 87 points to edge rival Ellsworth by 0.8 points.
Ten-time Class B South champ Medomak Valley of Waldboro finished third with 82.4 points followed by Leavitt of Turner (80.4), Presque Isle (76.5), Morse of Bath (75.7), Brewer (72.7), John Bapst of Bangor (69.6), Old Town (67.9), Gray-New Gloucester (67.8), Erskine Academy of South China (63.4) and Freeport (52.1).
Hermon’s tumbling was spot-on, and the Hawks’ pyramids were constructed with precision and included some creative moves involving the flyers.
Presque Isle posted a nine-point improvement from the regionals.
