IN IT TO WIN IT: The Torrington Warrior Cheerleaders!

This year the Torrington Warrior Cheerleaders are working hard to fulfill their motto “In it to Win it" for in early December they have the opportunity to win a National Title in the AYC National Cheer Competition.

After earning the Grand Champion title and first place at the 2014 CT Allied Conference for the second year in a row, the Warrior team went on to the New England Regional Cheer Competition. At the Regional competition they qualified for the National Cheer Competition in Orlando, Florida, a prestigious honor awarded only to the top 3 teams from each region in each division. With Coach Danielle Jolicoeur at the helm assisted by Taylor French, Whitney Quarles and Jeymi Hernandez, the Warrior Cheerleaders have demonstrated energy, spirit, teamwork and their “In it to Win It” positive attitude. Already the Torrington community is proud of these young students in this extraordinary athletic achievement.

The Warrior Cheerleading will need to travel to Orlando to be part of the competition from December 10th - 15th and this is where the Torrington community can support the team live their dream.

From NOW through Dec 10th you can contribute directly to the GOFUNDME campaign dedicated to this cause. This direct way of helping the team can directly impact the ability for these students to participate in this final competition.

Dec 3rd 7pm-9pm The Arts Desire is holding a Painting Party to benefit the Torrington Warrior Cheerleaders. It is BYOB $35.00 (paint and canvas included)

Dec 5th from 3-8pm there will be a bake sale outside the Stop & Shop on Torringford Street (east side).

Dec 6th from 8am-10am there will be an Applebee’s pancake breakfast (some raffle prizes will be awarded during the breakfast).  

So be a part of this historic year and help these young warriors achieve their dream.
