MATTESON - Saturday, October 30, 20010 Will-Cook Cheer Association (WCCA) annual competition showcased 7 of their 10 teams over @ Rich Central High School. It was a great day for cheering and team spirit and from the looks of the excellent performances everyone brought their “A” game. The gym was packed as usual, with parents, fans, and friends cheering their girls on to victory. Amateur Sports News Network was there, to catch all the action.

On this afternoon, the following teams: South Holland, Matteson, Richton Park, Hazel Crest, Country Club Hills, Kankakee–Riverside, and University Park performed at four separate levels: Widgets, Peewee, Junior Varsity and Varsity. All of the teams were gunning to dethrone last year’s champs in each division.

Well, this year the fans were definitely not disappointed, as the cheerleaders wowed us with their awesome precision moves, super-high toe-touches and creative stunts. Before the competition got under way, the Mascots from Richton Park and Matteson graced us with their adorable performances. I believe everyone was quite surprised that the skills our little ones displayed. Great job Mascots!!!

The results of the WCCA 2010 Competition are as follows:

During breaks, the crowd was entertained as usual by “Spirit Man” with his dancing and antics.

The WCCA Staff and coaches even got in on the fun and got a little line dancing - “Wobble!” I couldn’t’ resist , I had to join them.

Did you know…
*A recent study led by researcher, Hermann Engels of Wayne State University, concluded that competitive Cheerleaders are in the same league physically as Olympic soccer and gymnastic contenders. The study, which was one of the first of its kind, measured the fitness and physiology of 33 female high school Cheerleaders. The group of Cheerleaders consisted of a mix of competitive Cheerleaders and sideline Cheerleaders (Cheerleaders that cheer for a sports team at school). The researchers then put the Cheerleaders through some rigorous days of testing which included workouts on treadmills, stationary cycles and bend-and-reach tests. These tests measured the cheerleaders’ workout capacity, flexibility and lean body mass. For more, click here.
