Pearl City sweeps West cheerleading

Advertiser Staff

Pearl City’s cheerleaders made history yesterday, winning the first officially sanctioned high school championship meet in Hawai'i.

Pearl City won the varsity and junior varsity divisions in the seven-school Oahu Interscholastic Association Western Division Pep Squad Championships before a packed audience at Aiea High gym.

Each school did one routine, which could include cheering, dancing, stunting and tumbling, and were awarded points from five judges. The final score dropped the high and low scores. A panel of three judged the junior varsity.

The OIA Eastern Division championship will be Saturday at Castle High, and the overall OIA championship Feb. 10 at a site to be determined.

Host Aiea was varsity runner-up and Radford was third.

Pearl City’s nine-member team was fresh from finishing sixth in the medium varsity division at the National Cheerleading Association Championships last month in Dallas, and the Chargers’ preparation and confidence were evident.

"That (national competition) really helped," coach Sandy Oshiro said. "We tell them to sell the routine and look confident."

Sherri Arakawa, Lana Eltagonde and Tiffany Rosales are captains of the first championship team.
