Congratulations to the Glen Cove Varsity Cheerleaders! On Jan. 31, the girls went head-to-head with teams across Long Island at the Smithtown West Competition.

According to coach Jessica Thompson, it has been a long and bumpy road for these girls, who have shown dedication, perseverance and strength. In the words of captain Lila Nolan, "No other sport wants you to look pretty while screaming like a man, holding another person in the air, tossing them, catching them and smiling!"  

Cheerleading is a tough sport, but these girls made it look easy. Congratulations on taking home the second-place trophy! The next stop is the Cheer Extreme Nationals by the Sea in Virginia Beach this March.
