Recently our winter cheerleaders took first place in the small school Co-Ed Division South Sectionals at the MSSAA Winter Cheerleading Competition.  This honor qualifies our squad to compete in the state tournament this Sunday, March 10th, at Tantasqua Regional High School in Fiskdale, MA.  Hoping to place 1st or 2nd in the small co-ed division or in the top 5 overall will give them a nod in the New England Spirit Competition later in the month.  Good luck NHS Cheerleaders!!!

NHS Cheerleaders Visit the State House

Rep. John Rogers invited the team after we returned from Florida.  The team took a bus into Boston and was greeted by John's assistant, a NHS graduate.  We took a tour of the State House and took in all its incredible history.  We were then led into the House of Representatives.  The representatives were in recess but the few people there asked for a cheer.  Naturally the squad put up three stunts right in the center of the room.


Rep. Rogers introduced us as the Mass State Champs.  He spoke of how proud he was and mentioned our recent trip to Nationals in Disney World.  At the conclusion of his speech the entire house floor gave us a standing ovation.  It was an honor to be there and the squad really enjoyed the visit.

Before boarding the plane to Nationals the NHS cheerleaders posed with Boston's Mayor Menino and Wally the Green Monster, from the Red Sox.

The team practied before our first competition and woke up very early the next morning to perform at Nationals at ESPN Studios.  They placed 25th in the country and placed 9th at World's the next day. 

But the squad is not stopping there.  They are on another quest to defend their state title and obtain another bid to Nationals in early March, 2012.

NHS Varsity Cheerleading Earns Bid to Nationals, Looking for Donations
Friday, 02 December 2011 20:30



By Kelly Glista,


This season provided to be a very successful one for the 2011 Fall Norwood High School Co-Ed Varsity Cheerleading Squad.

At the beginning of the season the team competed in two invitationals, one in Beverly, where they placed first in the Co-Ed Division and were the Grand Champions scoring a 159.75, and then in Marshfield where they were awarded first place again. After revamping the routine due to injuries, the team competed at Bay State and scored high enough to adance to the South Section Regionals.

On Nov. 13, our team won a decided victory, scoring a 160.75 (22 points ahead of the second place team) and placing first in their division at the South Regionals and securing the squad a berth at the State Tournament. At this time the team was 19th in the state, overall. At the State Competition in Shrewsbury, on Nov. 20, the team delivered the routine of their lives, coming in first place in the State in their Co-Ed Division.

This win gave Norwood their first bid for Nationals since 1994. The NHS Varsity Co-Ed Cheerleading Squad will be heading to Florida sometime in February if they can raise approximately $30,000 to send their team. At this time the team has several fundraisers going on such as selling a Norwood Mustang Bead and a VIP Patriots raffle to help raise money for the team since the Winter cheer season is not funded and we soley rely on donations to fund the entire season.

The team is extremely excited to get a National Bid because becoming State Champtions does not happen very often. However, they must raise the money within the next eight weeks to make their dreams come true. If you would like to contribute to their goal of raising $30,000, and help the entire NHS Co-Ed Cheerleading Team go to Nationals, the team is accepting donations from area residents or if any business or businesses would like to sponsor our team you can contact Joan Scanzio Briggs at 617-759-4434. Any donors may send their checks to Joan Scanzio Briggs, 21 Hemlock Street, Norwood, MA 02062. Please make checks payable to "Friends of Norwood Cheerleading." Go Stangs!


The team needs to raise approximately $30,000 to make the trip to Florida and compete at the national level.
