Endicott Cheer Makes History at Nationals; Gulls Finish Fifth Overall

2015 NCA Collegiate National Championship - All Girl Division III Final Standings

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.- The 2015 Endicott cheerleading team, led by Head Coach Terrie Cook and her assistant Nicole Palermo, made history by leading the team to the best record in school history at the NCA & NDA Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championships.  With captains Amy Yandow (Essex Junction, Vt.) and Meghan Grzybinski (Holbrook, Mass.), as well as seniors Courtney Karpiej (Torrington, Conn.) and Elizabeth Goddard (Winthrop, Mass.) leading the way, the team weathered two days of grueling competition on the Band Shell in Daytona Beach Florida, to finish fifth in the country in a very tough Division III All-Girl division. 

The team's titles and accomplishments didn't stop there.  They are also your Division III All-Girl New England Champions as they beat all of the New England teams they competed against in their respective division, closing with a score of 86.30. These hardworking girls and coaches made their school and gull fans proud! While setting the pace high and making history, they proved to themselves and their competitors that hard work, determination and staying true to team skills gets you "no deductions," and a place on the podium at the Band Shell in the most prestigious collegiate national championship-NCA. They are now one of the best teams in the country! They are all proud to be Gulls and are looking forward to seeing what these talented young ladies and coaches have in store for us in 2016.
