JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The Johns Creek Junior Gladiator competition cheerleaders with their coach, Danielle Sherfey, won first place in the Oct. 5 Wolverine Cheer Invitational at West Forsyth High School. By a wide point margin, this elite team of 15 athletes defeated all the middle school teams in the small division and amazed the audience with their acrobatics. The sport of competition cheer combines the athleticism of tumbling and stunting with beautifully choreographed dance. In a stunning team performance, the Johns Creek Junior Gladiators reaped the rewards for many hours of conditioning and practice. Annual tryouts for rising sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders begin with registration in April each year. For more information on how to begin preparing now, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
