Driscoll honors cheerleaders

State Rep. Mike Driscoll welcomed the St. Hubert High School cheerleading team to the state Capitol and presented them with an official citation from the state House of Representatives.

ldquo;These talented young women and their coach prove what is possible with enough dedication and hard work,” Driscoll said. “They should be proud of their accomplishment, and it is an honor to recognize their success.”

Driscoll honored the Bambies for sending four squads to Orlando in February to compete in the National High School Cheerleading Championship. The Bambi Squad took first in the Large Junior Varsity Division for the second year in a row, and the three other squads all had top-10 finishes in their respective divisions. ••
