With the Northern Lake County Conference and IHSA Sectionals just around the corner, the varsity Sequoit cheerleading team competed at the Grayslake North Invitational in order to compete against competitors for the season. The team placed 7th out of 12 teams. Placing first was the Grayslake Central Rams.

In this weekend’s performance, there were deductions made due to stunt falls. This led to the score for the Sequoits to decrease. Instead of letting this weekend’s performance affect the way they will perform in the future, they are going to try their hardest to improve on their downfalls. They will be looking to improve for the upcoming NLC Conference competition which will be held at Round Lake High School on Monday, January 14.

Varsity coach, Amber Babin, thinks that a great way to improve the Sequoits performance would be to clean up what they can in the routine before conference. By doing this, it will benefit their scoring and the way that they compete.

“We are constantly making changes to ensure we have the best possible looking routine for our team going into Sectionals,” Babin said. “We have spent a lot of time rearranging formations and cleaning transitions to make sure the athletes added into the routine this week blended well into every part of the routine.”

Senior Graci Leineberg believes that competing two times in a short amount of time will be a great experience and won’t affect anything. She hopes for an amazing outcome this year and looks forward to the final results of the season.

“It’s going to be different competing on a school night, but I’m super excited to be able to compete two times in a few days,” Leineberg said. “After a not perfect performance, we all want to redeem ourselves and perform the way we know how to.”
