|ACT OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY||2007-2008|
NO. R-120. House concurrent resolution congratulating the 2007 Poultney High School championship Division III cheerleading team.
Offered by: Representative Donaghy of Poultney
Whereas, in order to excel as a cheerleader, an individual must have innate enthusiasm, be physically fit, and have the ability to work in coordination with teammates and often a musical accompaniment, and
Whereas, Poultney High School has mastered the finer points of cheerleading as its recent record of accomplishment testifies, having captured championship titles in Division II in 2004 and 2005 and then winning a similar honor in Division III in 2006, and
Whereas, having settled comfortably into the Division III alignment of teams, the Poultney cheerleaders were prepared to continue their impressive streak of state divisional titles, and
Whereas, when the cheerleading team traveled to Essex for the 2007 state championship competition, over 100 Poultney residents made the same journey, including many who adorned shirts emblazoned with the words “It takes a Village to raise a champion” as a sign of support for their home town cheerleaders, and
Whereas, the Poultney cheerleaders did not disappoint their many admirers as they captured a fourth consecutive state title, and
Whereas, in the second round of the Essex competition, Poultney earned 183 of a possible 200 points with the next highest scoring school in any of the three divisions turning in a performance that garnered a much lower 145 points, and
Whereas, the Poultney students comprising this fantastic cheerleading team are seniors Danielle Gregoire, Jessica Kimball, and Luke Dailey; juniors Brittany Snook, Katarina Kerber, Caliegh Nagar, Amanda Petty, Brooke Rupe, Katie Hampl, Kassey Powers, Kelsey Powers, Jami Panoushek, Meredith Oakman, and Ryan Pettis; sophomores Staci Jedlick, Ashley Morgan, Lauren Maynard, and Tammy Thomas; and freshmen Nicolette Duval, Aaron Snook, Ashley Fox, Erika Carter, Joanna Lilly, and Meghan Franzoni, and they all valued the support of team manager Patience Carpenter, and
Whereas, coach Rommy Fuller, varsity assistant Joey Crowningshield Williams and assistant varsity coach Tia Hewes all proved to be great instructors and mentors for the team, now therefore be it
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:
That the General Assembly congratulates the 2007 Poultney High School championship Division III cheerleading team, and be it further
Resolved: That the secretary of state be directed to send a copy of this resolution to Rommy Fuller at Poultney High School.
