Hall cheerleaders attend camp

Hall High School cheerleaders attended UCA cheer camp June 23-26 at the Embassy Suites in East Peoria. They trained in mounts, cheers, stunts and a set. Over the course of the camp, HHS cheerleaders were voted most improved overall by UCA staff and took third place in the big school division in the team competition. Hall seniors Carly Kirkman (left) and Alyssa Smith were named to the All-American Cheerleader squad. Only 14 girls were selected for this. Smith and Kirkman have the opportunity to perform in the London New Year’s Day Parade.
