The success the Ascension Eagles have enjoyed so far in the 2018/19 season continued at Legacy Cheer and Dance Nationals: Live your Legacy.
After months of hard work and routine upgrades, AEC made the journey up from East London to Birmingham. Athletes, coaches and parents alike were all excited, and nervous, for what the weekend might have in store.
But with no reason to be apprehensive, AEC were able to record: 3 first places, 3 second places, a fourth and a fifth place. This was a national event, one of the biggest of its kind in the country! We are so proud to have come away with such a great return!
Here are the teams’ placings:
Prodigy- 2nd place Mini Prep 1
Harmony- 2nd place Youth Prep 1
Symphony- 1st place Youth 1
Destiny- 4th place Junior Prep 1
Royalty- 2nd place Junior 1
Prophecy- 5th place Junior 2
Majesty- 1st place Senior 2
Eternity - 1st place Senior 4 co-ed.
It was great to return to Legacy, after a year out last season, and compete alongside teams we wouldn’t usually cross paths with in the South of England.
Frankie, coach of AEC’s highly esteemed mini prep 1 team Prodigy said: ‘congratulations to our amazing Baby Eagles, Prodigy, on their 2nd place. We are so proud of you! While AEC director Angela Green said: ‘Well done everyone! Some incredible personal bests this weekend- all in all a great day to be an Eagle!
As always, thank you to all the parents and carers who put in the time with their athletes to ensure they, and their teams, can be comp ready. We couldn’t do it without you.
Next stop, FC Internationals- SEE YOU AT THE BEACH!
