Rah Rah Rah 1971– Renfrew-Lanark Elementary Cheerleading Contest PLUS

If participation had been a factor, Almonte would certainly have been the winner at the Renfrew-Lanark Elementary Cheerleading Contest hosted by last year’s winner, St, Mary’s Separate School, in Carleton Place. The three elementary schools in Almonte, St. Mary’s, Naismith Memorial and G. L. Comba, were each represented by an enthusiastic group of girls. St. Joseph’s and Walter Zadow represented Arnprior and St Mary’s In Carleton Place rounded out the six entrants. The G. L. Comba cheerleaders were complimented on their outfits and the originality of their cheers. The best Impromptu cheer was also given by this same group of girls. However, despite those accolades, G. L. Comba was narrowly edged out of a first place finish and the trophy won by a well regimented group from St, Joseph’s in Arnprior, who were complimented on the sustained rhythm and length of their cheers Walter Zadow of Arnprior came third and their Miss Turner was given a bouquet of roses for her individual efforts. Over one hundred spectators were on hand to encourage the girls in their efforts. December 1971
