Tate High Cheerleaders Take 5th In The Nation

February 11, 2019

The Tate High School Cheerleaders won fifth place in the nation in their division Sunday night at UCA National High School Cheerleading Championship in Orlando.

Tate finished in the top five in the Small Varsity Coed division.

Earlier this month, the Tate cheerleaders also brought home a state championship.

The Aggie cheerleaders won the Florida High School Athletic Association Region Small Coed Championship. They were the first squad from Tate High School or Escambia County to take first place in their division since Pine Forest won that honor in the 80s, according to the Escambia County School District. They were also the first Escambia district squad to win since cheerleading was recognized as a sport and included in the FHSAA competitions.

Tate Aggie cheerleaders are Kyndell Ammons, Morgan Austin, Jonah Cass, Bailey Carter, Shelby Fleming, Isabella Floyd, Kensley Foley Hagyn Helton, Payton Herring, Madeline Hughes, Erin Johnson, Elena Lucci, Abi Manoso, Keaden Martin, Kyndal Milsted, Ashlyn NeSmith, Madelyn Ray, Emma Romero, Payton Simmons, Ariyana Wyatt, Krysanne Hagen – co-captain, Emilee Potter – co-captain, and Kennedy Bellard – captain. This year’s head coach is Morgan White and the assistant coach is Annie Wiggins.

“I’m so proud of the work these athletes have put in this year,” White, who spent four years as an Aggie cheerleader, said after the state championship. “We’ve had many trials and hurdles they’ve had to endure, but their resiliency and love for their school continues to push these athletes forward. I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of the Tate High School cheer program.”
