Three cheers for the Cowichan Valley Allstars Cheer team.

The Allstars attended their first competition of the season in Chilliwack.

The youth squad consisting of eight girls between the ages of seven and 11 was extremely excited after placing third all-around.

“They are consistently improving their skill level and working hard to clean their routine,’’ noted coach Rhonda Dale.

Each routine consists of tumbling, dance, jumps and stunting.

The senior team has 12 members between the ages of 11 and 18 and placed fifth all-around. “This is a good start to our season and we look forward to improving each time,’’ Dale indicated.
