“They did really good; they were really excited to see all the other teams,” Kodiak coach Ashley Chaney said.
Kodiak competed against two other schools — Colony and Valdez — in the small-schools co-ed division Tuesday at South Anchorage High School.
Colony won the title, and Chaney said second-place and third-place teams were not named.
Kodiak suffered a setback when one of its cheerleaders couldn’t compete due to injury. That gave the Bears only 10 cheerleaders from a possible 12-person competition.
Chaney credited sophomore Ronnie Siscar for filling in for her injured teammate.
“She stepped up and did some of the stunts that the other girl was doing,” Chaney said. “That was really good, because most people wouldn’t pick it up the first day they try it.”
