New Hartford Cheerleaders Win State Championship

The Utica Aud was filled with some major team spirit and pep on March 1, 2008. Over 700 cheerleaders from around the state turned out to perform at the New York State Cheering competition.

The New Hartford Spartans Cheering Squad received first place in their divison, making them New York State Champions. The only other local team to get that far were the cheerleaders from Proctor.

From jumps to twirls these high school and college teams really pumped it up. The organizer says it is a chance for these side line supporters to be on the front lines for a change.
