Orange Bowl YFA Cheer Championships Celebrate South Florida Youth

 

OBIE-TEL_7047This year’s Orange Bowl YFA Cheer Championships presented by Sports Authority welcomed more than 600 cheerleaders in the one-day competition on Sunday, November 8, at the Don Taft University Center Arena at Nova Southeastern University. The Doral Broncos Varsity Large squad walked away with the title of Overall Grand Champion.

Forty-six teams from more than 20 parks across South Florida competed in five divisions (Mini, Pee-Wee, Prep, Varsity, and Pro) and squad sizes (Small, Medium, and Large). The other big winner was the West Kendall Dolphins, who took first place in the Mini Large, Prep Large and Varsity Medium divisions. To promote good sportsmanship and spirit among those participating, the Orange Bowl also awarded the Olinda Park Bulls and Ft. Pierce Seminoles the Sportsmanship Award, while the Palm Beach Youth Football League Saints and the West Kendall Dolphins received the Spirit Award.

In addition to Sunday’s competition, two special presentations took place as Kim Hepburn of Miramar Regional Park was awarded with a $500 gas gift card on behalf of Marathon Petroleum for continued dedication to her park. The Law Offices of Panter, Panter & Sampedro honored Astrid Villarroel of the Doral Broncos with a $1,000 Florida 529 College Savings Plan. Villarroel was nominated and selected for this award based on her dedication to her cheer team and outstanding academic performance in school.
