Boston Globe: "Think cheerleaders aren’t athletes? Think again, say those at the state championship"

"The vibe at the Massachusetts School Administrators Association Winter Cheerleading State Championship is spirited, and the music is pulsating.

Where else do you get 800 high school student-athletes on 54 teams doing thousands of pyramids and tumbles and not hear a single boo from the large crowds?

If you’re looking for pom-poms, you won’t find any here at Worcester State University.

Although cheerleading is not officially a sport in Massachusetts schools, there’s no doubt that these are bona fide athletes. The days of cheerleaders being thought of as just pretty faces rooting on the boys’ teams are long over."

FHS boys basketball posts a win, girls basketball streak ends; Cheerleaders take 1st, wrestling and Indoor track performances at D1 meets shared

Via HockomockSports.com and Twitter, we share the results of the FHS winter sports action on Saturday:

End of 1Q:    Franklin 24    Burncoat 13
Halftime:     Franklin 35    Burncoat 27
End of 3Q:    Franklin 57    Burncoat 36

Girls Basketball = Franklin, 35 vs. Central Catholic, 54 – Final 
– Franklin led 23-20 at halftime but was outscored 34-12 in the second half to end its win streak at 54 games. It was the first loss for the Panthers since the 2019 state semifinal. It was both the most points that the Panthers have allowed this season and the fewest points they have scored. Ashley Dinges scored 24 (14 in the third quarter) and Calire Finney scored 18 (12 in the fourth) to lead the Raiders. Katie Peterson scored 10 points for Franklin, including eight in the first half. Stefany Padula (6-of-7 on free throws) and Olivia Quinn both scored eight points in the loss. Franklin will face Bridgewater-Raynham in the consolation round on Sunday.

Recap: School Committee hears about the FHS program of studies, approves senior perks, and trip to Nationals for FHS Cheerleaders

Quick recap:
  • School Committee hears about modifications to the FHS Program of Studies for the 2022-2023 School Year, what the modifications are and how they were developed from feedback and recognition of changes in students and needs
  • Note the presentation doc previously released for this meeting was not the one used in the meeting, some pages had split out to multiple pages. Screen captures show the updated copy
  • Approval for FHS senior perks and for the FHS cheerleading team to travel to National competition was granted. The team cheered so loudly outside the building after they left the Council Chambers, it briefly interrupted the proceedings inside. A happy moment to recognize the accomplishments for this group
  • A new program for COVID-19 testing using "at-home FDA-approved rapid antigen test" kits. The test/stay process and contact tracing will stop with the introduction of these kits provided by DESE.
  • The School Committee entered Executive Session and did not return to open meeting to continue discussions on negotiations

Photos captured during the meeting can be found in one album  https://photos.app.goo.gl/MXrJDo8M5A2c4tu96

Audio of the meeting should be available in a couple of days

My notes captured via Twitter during the meeting are summarized in the following PDF doc. This new tool also includes the photos shared inline with the tweet notes.  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1M3AcnmYaJV8IAr9sUGLmKvYsaEo8mPrs/view?usp=sharing

Pantherbook: "Franklin Panthers Won't Be Stopped: Cheer Wins Hockomock League Championship" (video)

"Franklin Panthers Won't Be Stopped: Cheer Wins Hockomock League Championship"
"Cheerleading competitions: massive gatherings of teams from all over, with crowds of parents and supporters packed into stands to watch the cheerleader’s routines. Of course, because of coronavirus restrictions, cheer competitions looked a lot different this year.

Although the cheer team typically competes in the Fall and Winter seasons, the MIAA changed the timeframe to be Fall II and Spring. In a regular season, the FHS team would compete in several invitational competitions before heading to Hockomocks (then, if all goes well, Regionals and States). This season, there was only one competition: Hockomocks.

After being denied a chance to compete for the Division I state championship when COVID struck last March, many members of the team were crushed, but they were eager to get back on the mat and prove themselves."

MA State News: Cheerleader hotspot with link to Franklin; travel order downgraded, MA cases stalling (not dropping); Franklin's cases increasing

"37 people infected in COVID-19 cluster at Weymouth cheerleading training facility"
"Thirty-seven participants at a youth cheerleading training facility in Weymouth have been infected with the coronavirus, the Weymouth Health Department said Thursday.

The total includes only the participants, not others such as parents or other contacts, because that is still being investigated, the department said.

Of the 37 infected, four are from Weymouth. Others come from Braintree, Rockland, Randolph, Quincy, Brookline, East Bridgewater, Hingham, Kingston, Marion, Franklin, Whitman, Dedham, and Easton, the department said."

"Governor Charlie Baker’s office said the state’s travel order will be downgraded to a less onerous advisory on Monday, the same day Massachusetts moves to Phase 4, Step 1 of its economic reopening.

The announcement came in a statement Thursday."

"As some states see a COVID surge, Mass. cases stall at an ‘unacceptably high’ level"

"Massachusetts is entering spring on a hopeful note. The state earlier this week released its plan to open vaccination eligibility to all adults on April 19, and a few sunny, warm days have begun to coax residents out of their homes and winter coats.

But beneath the air of optimism lies a problem, epidemiologists caution: COVID-19 cases, after declining sharply in early February, have plateaued at an average of 1,500 per day, and the threat of another surge remains."

Pantherbook: "Fall II Preview- What’s Different?"

 

"On February 22nd, student athletes will be returning to their cheer, football, volleyball, and winter track seasons after a long wait.

However, MIAA guidelines will be different this season in order to remain safe and socially-distanced.

Indoor facilities such as gyms will only be operating at 40% capacity following the Massachusetts Phase 3, Step 1 guidelines, and spectators at games will be limited to low numbers."

Please help send these girls to their first ever AYC National Championship!

"Our 14U Franklin Cheer team just qualified to compete at the AYFC National Championships in Kissimmee, Florida from December 11-16, 2019. Please help send these girls to their first ever AYC National Championship!!!

Their journey has been long, their effort...tireless, and their desire to be the best can only be topped by their dedication and commitment to “team above self”. This is more than just a competition for these girls. This is the culmination of hours and hours of practice, persistence and sacrifice. Now it’s time to show our support for all their hard work. Every donation helps no matter how small. Please consider giving.

This trip to National’s will be an experience every single one of them will remember for a lifetime. For some, this will be the first time leaving the New England. For others, this will be the first trip they take with teammates but without their families. For most, this will be the only time these girls have the opportunity to represent our community and state at a national level.

This will be a competition where they learn the value of hard work, determination, commitment, sacrifice and teamwork. They will learn , because of their work ethic, all things are possible. For those very reasons, they will return from Nationals as “winners” regardless of their scores.

The cost per cheerleader is approximately $1,300.00 inclusive of airfare, lodging, food, transportation and other costs/fees. We need to raise $18,000.00 in two short weeks to enable all of the girls on our team to go.

The team has done their hard work, practice after practice, to get this far. They’ve overcome injuries, icing noses and lips, sprains and strains, all for the sake of a team. They’ve missed social events and other opportunities for one shot at rocking a flawless 2 ½ minute routine where one mistake, one slip by one girl, can mean the end of the season for all. Please help us send them the rest of the way!! Donate now and make their dreams come true!!!"
