BHS cheer squads shine at Onsted

By Chad Hutchinson

The Blissfield varsity cheer squad had a rocky start to its 2012 campaign, before rallying to a second-place finish at the Onsted Invitational Saturday, Dec. 15, coming just 1.08 points shy of vaulting themselves past the first-place Addison squad.

The Lady Royals had finished sixth out of nine teams at the Grass Lake Invitational Dec. 8, followed by a fifth-place finish at Ida Dec. 12.

The Blissfield Middle School cheer squad also competed in the Onsted Invitational on Saturday, Dec. 15, and defeated Morenci, Addison and Madison to bring home the first-place hardware.
