Students Win World Cup State Titles

13/08/2015

Two Year 9 Coolum State High School students have tumbled and somersaulted their way to the Asia Pacific Cup after winning the World Cup State Titles for cheerleading.

Indi Bryant and Ebony Shortall took out the Level 4 Cheerleading title with their dazzling performance of gymnastic skills, spectacular jumps and dance routine, finishing a huge eight points ahead of their second place competitors.

They now head to the Asia Pacific Grand International on the Gold Coast in September, regarded as the most exciting and highly anticipated cheerleading and dance event in Australia.

"I’m really excited to go to the next level to compete. I’m looking forward to the whole competition. I just love competing," said 14 year old Ebony.

The girls will have to get used to competing. They have also just been selected to compete in the Duel in the Desert dance and cheerleading competition in America next year.

But they know for the moment, they have to keep focused for their first challenge on the Gold Coast.

Teams from all over Australia and the wider Asia-Pacific region are selected to attend the Asia Pacific Cup and compete for the chance to be named Grand Champions in either dance or cheerleading. All teams then have the opportunity to win bids to international events including the IASF Cheer & Dance Worlds.
