    Tuscarora High School’s competitive cheer squad delivered a deduction-free performance Sept. 29 at the Cheers Sports Spirit Bowl to earn their first-ever team title in the program’s third season.

    The Huskies totaled 236.5 points on their routine to edge runner-up and host Stone Bridge by four points for the crown at the 15-team event. Nine teams competed in the varsity division and six squads participated in the junior varsity division.

    “I was ecstatic,” Tuscarora coach Meg Upp said of her team’s routine. “The girls have been working really hard and for it all to come together was awesome.”

    The Huskies - captained by senior Kristian Welch and junior Lauren Armand - fulfilled their goal of performing a clean routine and were awarded with the first-place trophy.

    “I think it gives them the confidence and the respect that they needed as a cheer program,” Upp said. “This inspires them to work even harder.”

    Stafford, the only other varsity team to not have any deductions, finished third with 228 points. Broad Run placed fourth and Woodgrove rounded out the top five.

    Saturday’s event also featured a sibling rivalry as sophomore Shannon Keye helped Tuscarora place one spot better than Stone Bridge and her older sister, senior Shelby Keye.

    Stafford won the junior varsity division with 187.5 points. Stone Bridge was once again a close second with 184.5 points.
