Wolverines Tear Up The Floor in Nottingham

The Basingstoke Wolverines Cheerleading Squad took three squads to Nottingham to compete in the ICC British Open with a total of 45 athletes and their second competition of the season.  This was by far the hardest competition that they will compete in this season and the standard was incredible, competitors team programmes delivered outstanding routines with some incredible unique and innovative performances.

The Wolverines youngest squad Mystique comprising of girls aged 5 to 11 with an average age of 9 competed at Youth Level 1 Small Division and finish in 5th place out of 12 teams and achieved their weekend goal of 0 point deductions.  This was another great result for Mystique against the best teams in the country with long established squads.

Storm squad made up of girls from 12 years plus competed at Senior Level 1 Small Division and finished in 5th place out of 6 teams.  The girls pulled out a fantastic routine and performance but the competition was just too good for the squad to place any higher.
Rogue squad made up of girls up to 14 years of age competed at Junior Level 2 Small Division and finished in 7th place out of 9 teams.  This was only the second performance from the new squad rogue and they completed a fantastic routine with 0 point deductions.

The squads always push themselves to compete against the best and this can only make them stronger and better for the future and they are working hard in training to get ready for their next competition in June at Jamfest Europe, Liverpool.

Chloe Pullen, Assistant Coach at Basingstoke Wolverines said "I'm so proud of all 3 teams this weekend, we attended one of the hardest competitions we've ever been to and all 3 squads held their own and hit their routines! With two teams hitting zero deductions! I'm unbelievably proud of all the girls and can't wait for the next one!"
