|ACT OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY||2007-2008|
NO. R-343. House concurrent resolution congratulating the 2008 Vergennes Union High School Commodores Division II cheerleading champions.
Offered by: Representatives Clark of Vergennes and Oxholm of Vergennes
Offered by: Senators Ayer and Giard
Whereas, as the defending Division II cheerleading champions, the Vergennes Union High School Commodores had a reputation of excellence among the other schools within their division, and
Whereas, because only one-third of last year’s championship squad returned for the 2007–2008 season, the team needed to rebuild its cheerleading knowledge and skill to the high level at which it finished in 2007, and
Whereas, despite this challenge, the Commodores dedicated many hours to shaping an exciting championship competition performance, consisting of innovative cheers and difficult presentation maneuvers, and
Whereas, when the Commodores appeared at the state championship, held at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex, the Vergennes cheerleaders were ready to defend their title, and they retained their state title with a 28‑point margin, 161–133, over their nearest Division II competitor, U-32 High School, and
Whereas, this season’s cheerleading Commodores included Jenny Johnson, Belinda Hall, Lily Maxham, Jacky Schoonmaker, Katee Ingram, Dana O’Brien, Anna Hamer, Aaron Clodgo, Michelle Stark, April Karzmarzcyk, Katie Viau, Jessica Laughlin, Jenny Cunningham, Nichole Hunter, and Shelby Sheehan, and
Whereas, coach Debra Hill and assistant coach Dani Hausler were superb teachers and team mentors, now therefore be it
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:
That the General Assembly congratulates the 2008 Vergennes Union High School Commodores Division II cheerleading champions.
