Douglas County dominates the State Spirit Championship
DENVER – Douglas County School District had an impressive showing, winning five State titles, during the 2014 State Spirit Championships held at the Denver Coliseum on December 5 and 6.
Rock Canyon High School claimed the 5A State Championship in Cheer. Ponderosa was the 4A State champion in Poms. Castle View won the 4A/5A State championship in Co-Ed Cheer. Chaparral won the State title in Jazz. Mountain Vista was crowned the state champion in Hip Hop.
Chaparral's performance, was a touching tribute to former poms teammate Taylor Llewellyn, who died in a car crash during the season.
Additionally, in three of the competitions: 5A Cheer, 4A/5A Co-Ed Cheer and Jazz, DCSD swept the top three places.
