Congratulations to our Comet Cheerleaders who competed in the 2nd Annual Comet Cheer Challenge on February 19th. There were 9 schools who competed in the event; Bristol, Brookwood, Randall, Riverview, Salem, Trevor-Wilmot, Union Grove, Wheatland, and Yorkville. Our Riverview Comets took home the Silver this year! Congratulations to all the teams who competed as it was a very close competition. Special congrats to the Salem Falcons for placing 3rd and the Randall Wildcats who placed first and who will be bringing home the traveling trophy this year!
