The Sacred Heart Cheerleading team closed out its season last weekend at the New England College Championships hosted by the NECA. SHU finished third in their division at the event that hosted over 75 teams inside the Ryan Center in Kingston, RI.
The Pioneers have had a superb season, racking up a pair of first-place finishes during the spring. SHU topped Western Connecticut and American International in the All-Girl cheer division on March 3 at a NECA event hosted by East Haven High School. That victory came one day after defeating Eastern Connecticut at the Spirit Fest One Day Fun Day Competition.
Sacred Heart also took part in an exhibition at the CIAC Cheerleading State Championship on March 9-10. The Pioneers performed in front of over 50 squads to promote cheerleading at the collegiate level.
