The Bridge City High School Varsity Cheerleaders attended National Cheerleaders Asscociation Cheer Camp in Galveston recently. While at camp the girls received a spirit stick along with five superior ribbons and one excellent ribbon.

Eight varsity members were named NCA All-American Cheerleaders: Blair Bishop, Maddy Bray, Jordan Cricchio, Brooklyn Hogden, Whitney LeBlanc, Lari Navarro, Bria Thibodeaux and Nicole Threatt.

As a team, the girls received the Herkie Team Award – chosen by the NCA staff for the team that shows genuine team unity and spirit throughout the entire camp.

The girls also won the Spirit Award; chosen by all of the schools at camp; for the team they believe showed the most spirit all week.
