A Special Steve Black Show Congratulations goes out to the State Champions who represented their schools in our Tri-County area for the 2012-2013 School Year.
In February, the Cheerleading Squad from North Laurel High School won the first KHSAA State Competitive Cheerleading Championship in the All-Girl Medium Division of Class 2A over teams like Bullitt East, Dixie Heights and Bowling Green. North finished with a score of 280.4. This capped off a big month for the team as they won took first place honors at the UCA National Competition in Orlando, Florida, beating out 38 other teams. Check out The team’s state winning preference courtesy of Sierra Taylor’s video from YouTube.
Knox Central’s Cassidy “Cassi” Shippy was victorious in the 100 meter dash in Class 2A at the 2013 Kentucky State Track and Field Championships in Louisville, on Friday (5-17-13). Cassi finished with a time of 12.58 beating the best in the state including last year’s winner Alisa Adair of Western Hills, who placed 4th in this year’s event. Both Cassi and Alisha will run Track at the University of Kentucky next year.
There are still a few sports left to complete their seasons, so it is possible we could see more teams and/or individuals on this list.
Once again, Congrats to Cassi and the North Laurel Cheerleading Squad on their achievements this year!!!
