ESHS Cheer crew is London-bound

After a vigorous three days at Avila University, four of Excelsior Springs High School’s cheer and yell leaders qualified to perform at the London Parade on New Year’s Day along with all UCA All-American Cheerleaders that have been selected across the country.

Included in the ESHS qualifiers are T.J. Johnson, Olivia Sharp, Elizabeth Jammeck and Braxxtin Todd.  Unfortunately, due to age restrictions, Hammeck, who is a freshmen, will not be able to attend.

Johnson, Sharp and Todd are among more than 500 high school cheerleaders and dancers who will perform in the parade.  Only the top 12 percent of cheerleaders who attend varsity summer camps earn the chance to march in the parade.  In addition to performing in the parade the ESHS cheerleaders will also have the chance to tour London during their seven-day trip .
