BELLINGHAM - Sixteen Ilwaco High School cheerleaders and Coach Jessica Jansma attended the National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) Camp at Western Washington University July 9 through 11 in Bellingham. Team awards included superior skills in stunting, game day top team, safety award, national championship bid winner, and spirit stick winner.

Coach Jansma achieved NCA coaches credentialing program status and also won the Herkie Award for “realizing that team unity and learning are the most important parts of camp. Your cheerleaders’ lives will be better for having you in them.” Jansma said, “Throughout camp, individuals are nominated by the NCA staff to tryout to be an All-American Cheerleader. Girls who are nominated perform in front of the entire camp and are scored by the NCA staff.” All-American nominees were Marie Boteilho, Vallori Crowston and Jenna Lee and Crowston was honored as an All-American.

Others who attended the camp were Alyssa Cousineau, Alexis Ferguson, Kelsey Gardner, Kaylie Grunland, Angelina Jackson, Charlotte Johnson, Elleigh Kaino, Erin Kelly, Kady Kirby, Kelsey Madsen, Katie Powell, Paris Spence, and Brooke Weir according to Jansma.

    Hey Spences….I’m playing on the web tonite, getting blog ideas, and clicked on your site from the CRBJ web site. I LOVE the photo with the Spence sisters…and the commentary strikes an emotional cord. Not that many sisters in my life, but many similar fond memories of a warmth-filled childhood. Thank you for evoking some dust-covered emotions! Now…about Friday and the wine/whine time…..Lovingly signed….The “other” Susan
