The Jets cheer team from Northern Oklahoma College Enid returned from national competition with their first COA International Championship.
“This team has had the most talent at NOC since I have been coaching. We have a few injuries this entire season but came together in the past month to put a winning routine on the mat,” Coach Josh Quintero said.
Held at Royal Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., the COA Ultimate International Championship event hosted 123 teams from throughout the United States and from Canada, Chile, Colombia and Sweden.
The Jets won the Elite Co-Ed Junior College Cheer Division, competing against Florida colleges Polk State and Miami Dade.
Teams performed a two and a half-minute routine, including stunts, tumbling, jumps and pyramids. The Jets outscored both rivals in each of two days’ competition, ultimately winning the division by three points.
“On day one, we were in first place by two points. That evening we made some changes to our routine to up our score so that we made sure that no one would catch us,” Quintero said. “On day two, we were the last to compete in our division. I knew that we would win because our difficulty was too high for anyone to catch us.”
The team goal for next season is to enter an even bigger competition on a bigger stage and try to win another championship. “We have a lot of new, very talented cheerleaders coming in for this next season,” Quintero said. “We have 15 cheerleaders already committed for the 2015-16 season and I'm looking at adding about three or four more athletes.
“This group coming in will be the most talented group I have ever had at NOC, and that is hard to say after this season. The Jets Spirit Program keeps getting better and better every year. Our cheer program is starting to be Oklahoma's premier places to start your college cheer career. I have All Star Gym owners and high school cheer coaches contacting me each week asking about our program at NOC Enid.”
Championship team cheerleaders are Jade Bowen, Comanche; Kelsie England, Oklahoma City; Emmi Gaddy, Coweta; Nick Holden, Enid; Breanna Johnson, Broken Arrow; Desiree Nix, Norman; Lynzie Nuttle, Cushing; Hunter Rice, Comanche; Brooklyn Scarberry, Purcell; Michael Sims, Woodward; Kelsey Sorenson, Tuttle; Sage Sunderland, Alva; and Cheyenne Wiley, Newalla.
