Bulldogs finish ahead of third-place Platte County High School

The Kearney High School Cheerleading Squad finished second at the state competition on Saturday, Dec. 9 in Cape Girardeau.

The Bulldogs traveled to Southeast Missouri State University as the third-ranked squad and hoped for a score of 92. Their routine earned 94.87 points, with 2.5 points in deductions. They missed first place by less than a point, finishing just behind first-place North Point High School and ahead of third-place Platte County High School.

The KHS team scored the highest of their session in the Pyramids, Creativity, Tosses, Formations, and Jumps events.

“Congratulations to the entire team and coaching staff,” Kearney School District Activities Director Dave Schwarzenbach said. “This is one of the highest accomplishments by the cheer squad at state in school history!”

KHS Cheer is led by Head Coach Erin Schmeltz, along with Assistant Coaches Hannah Walter and Kassidy Robertson.
