CHECK OUT THE NEW BUCKSBLOGSPOT. HELP FOR BUCKS COUNTY BUSINESSES AND ECONOMIC RECOVERY – BUCKSBLOGSPOT

Mitey Mites are No. 1

The Northampton Indians Mitey Mite Cheer team had a very successful 2022 season.

The team of 34 third- and fourth-grade girls won first place at the BuxMont Championship on October 1st and first place at the Eastern Regional Pop Warner Championship in Trenton on October 30th.

With this first place finish, the girls automatically advanced to the Pop Warner National Cheer and Dance Championships at the Orange County Convention Center in Florida on December 8th. The close-knit group of girls is learning the important life lesson of raising funds to help offset the cost of their trip.

If you see the girls out in the community, please support and congratulate them on their awesome run. History behind the team and coaches: Four years ago, the two coaches were moms bringing their girls to the first practice only to learn that there was a need for coaches.

Without prior coaching history, they volunteered. Four years later, they are still learning how to coach and balance full-time jobs and kids.

Many of the girls have been with the team the entire time. The success of this season is the first time in Northampton history that the Mitey Mite age group has won first place at both competitions AND advanced to Nationals.

The team is Emmy Avitan, Lillyanna Batista, Adelyn Becker, Julianna Belz, Shay Dubas, Eliana Entenmann, Cayla Flynn, Emma Gaspari, Maeve Graham, Avery Haigh, Zoe Hamnett, Gianna Higginson, Cassidy Hughes, Penny Hull, Molly Jones, Katherine Kearney, Mackenzie Keller, Brielle Lawton, Alanna Mandel, Brynn McCusker, Taylor McGuigan, Ava Merjeski, Maddie Myers, Sophia Negrotti, Gianna Pane, Jordyn Pliner, Ava Pressman, Simone Rosenblatt, Maggie Sinclair, Kathleen Smith, Natalie Vettraino, Delainy Wehrmann, Alexandra Winderman, and Melanie Stavish.

Coaches are Jill Kearney and Jacki Higginson, and two student coaches, Lyla Molineux and Maayan Brown.

Congratulations, ladies!
