2019 CPL Tournament Finish: Champions
The 5 time CPL Champions Lane Tech Cheer Team is looking to grab their 6th CPL title this upcoming 2019-20 season. The team has earned three of their five championships within the past 3 seasons, making the consecutive championships look easy. With senior captains Azia Papillon and Julia Meade and Coach Maureen Murphy returning to Varsity Cheer this year, the Lane Tech Cheer team is fighting for a chance at competing for a 4-peat.
Alyssa Melendez, junior LT cheer member, is impressed by standout tumblers Klark Monelle and Kira Smith. “They both have really solid tumbling and are just good overall.” Both juniors, Monelle and Smith will play an immense role for the team this 2019-20 season as they cheer in the base position, serving as the foundation of the stunt. The base position requires a considerable amount of strength, as well as skill, which is applied during the constant lifting and throwing of the flyers.
The Lane Tech Cheer Team is set to take part in their first ICCA Invitational of the season on Saturday, December 21, hosted by Oswego East High School in Oswego, IL This cheer team will be ready to start the season out strong, and are hopeful for 1st place in their season opener.
