CHEERLEADING: Downriver teams collect a basketful of first-place trophies (PHOTOS)

Division 3 Grosse Ile posted the highest score of any team in any division at last week's Wyandotte competitive cheer competition.

The Woodhaven varsity competitive cheerleading team won the Saline Invitational last Saturday, scoring 697.54 points to pull down the first-place trophy. The Warriors were Division 1 champs at the event and the highest point total among the 12 teams at the event. The team is Hannah Meade, Megan Cottongim, Marisa Ledbetter, Layne Evanoff , Phoebe Banning, Montana Hatcher, Katrina Collins, Haleigh Cotton Megan Matatall, Bella Harris, Biyanna France, Tori Pusateri, Sam Gregoire, Taylor Cook, Ashlyn Paillon, Julianne Michalak, Avery Sherbrook and Coach Tara Hazey.

The Woodhaven Middle School team beat five other teams to capture the championship at the Saline Invitational. The team is Alyssa Paillon, Morgan Bates, Breanna Burris, Alexis Abbott-Mims, Arianna Lewis, Kaitlyn Bricker, Olivia Williams, Nya Middlebrooke, Nicole Marlow, Mikayela Luna, Elizabeth Anderson, Taylor Hamivitz, Janina Matyaszek, Aliyah Schafer, Maegan Harris, Caitlin Cassidy, Mikayla Adams, Alyssa Reed and Coach Kaylyn Teffault.



The host Bears, Trenton and Grosse Ile all snatched first-place trophies at the Wyandotte Competitive Cheerleading Competition last Saturday.

The Division 1 champ Bears scored 736.48 points, second in the whole competition to only Division 3 champion Grosse Ile, which posted a final total of 737.94. Despite being hit with a 24-point deduction, Summit Academy finished second in Division 3.

Trenton was the Division 2 champ with 730.28.

In the sub-varsity competitions, Wyandotte was the Junior varsity title and Trenton’s Arthurs Middle School was the middle school crown.

The Trojans, Bears and Red Devils were not the only teams meeting with success Saturday as Carlson, Woodhaven and Riverview also won championships.

Woodhaven won the Division 1 portion of the 12-teams Saline Invitational with an event-topping score of 697.54.

Carlson was at the 10th annual Cougar Invitational and, as usual, the three-time defending Division 2 state champs stole the show.

Despite last year’s state runner-up Dearborn Divine Child and top team Allen Park being in the D2 field and despite a strong crop of Division 1 teams there, the Marauders still posted the highest final score.

Carlson’s score of 771.50 was more than five points clear of its next closest pursuer, which happened to be Allen Park (765.16).

Riverview was at the eight-team Livonia Ladywood Invitational and the Bucs’ final score of 673.78 was good enough to bring home the Division 2 first-place trophy. That score was the highest of the day regardless of division posted at Ladywood.
