Cheer club celebrates first win

The athletes only began practising in February, but have already made the South Coast proud.

The Mid South Coast Crew celebrated a win at a cheer competition recently.

The team took part in the Pom Non-Prop and Performance Cheerleading Junior Hip-Hop categories at the third KZN Majorette and Cheerleading Association competition in Pinetown, hosted by the Highway Majorette Club.

“They outdid themselves in their first competition and placed first in Hip-Hop. They surpassed my expectations and those of their parents, especially as the team only started practising in February,” said Liezel Jooste (Coach Wiezy).

Coach Wiezy added that in the last few months, the team rose to the challenge, applied themselves and came together as a crew, and the results speak for themselves.

“It is a wonderful feeling as a coach to be able to give back and see your athletes not only excel but enjoy themselves doing so.”

For the Mid South Coast Crew, seeing the crowd cheering them and hearing heartwarming comments from the judges was reward enough.

Coach Wiezy said that she is proud of the club’s achievement, taking into consideration they don’t have the props they need to perform and are still putting together uniforms.

“The challenges hasn’t stopped the athletes, and I cannot wait to see what they will achieve as we improve on the displays heading into our next competition on May 25 and the KZN finals in August.”
