After a tough time at Jamfest Europe, the Ascension Eagles Cheerleaders finished the season on a high with an incredible display at Future Cheer Nationals!
For these athletes, their journeys to this point started a year ago when they came through the doors of Talent Central Cheer and Dance, much like athletes are doing right now, and tried out for the programme. Fast forward a year, having experienced highs and lows and overcoming huge obstacles, these athletes were able to showcase their skills at the grandest stage the UK has to offer- Future Cheer. This is how the Eagles from Newham, East London, did:
Prodigy Mini prep 1- 1st place
Harmony Youth 1- 4th place
Dynasty Youth 2- 2nd place
Destiny Junior 1- 3rd place
Prophecy Junior 2- 2nd place
Majesty Senior 2- 1st place
Eternity Senior R5- 3rd place
Prodigy, AEC’s youngest team were able to maintain their 100% unbeaten record by winning the Mini 1 national title, while Majesty, AEC’s senior 2 team also took the division title. Excellent performances from AEC’s youth and junior teams showed exactly why AEC is the place to develop young people in to fine athletes- they’re a hugely exciting prospect for the 18/19 season. Special shout out to Prophecy, AEC’s junior 2 team who, although they placed second in their division, outscored many other 1st placed level 2 teams. AEC’s flagship team Eternity, put on a show to really give AEC’s younger athletes something to aspire too.
All in all, an excellent weekend. Thank you Future Cheer. See you all in the 18/19 season.
