Education Thursday, February 6, 2014


Monsignor Edward Pace High School's Spartan Varsity cheerleading team has come a long way. The girls will be competing in State Regionals and State Finals in Orlando, Florida, after winning first place and the Spirit Award at the Florida Cheer and Dance competition.

The Pace cheerleaders are working hard practicing daily, cheering at every pep rally and football and basketball games, all while maintaining no less than a B average with 90 percent of the team on the honor roll. 

Coached by Spartan alumni Lanita Zeigler, class of 1982, Melissa Pimentel-Reyes, class of 2004, Brandy Acevedo, class of 2010, and Chelsea Zeigler, class of 2011, the Spartan cheerleaders will continue to have a successful season. 

This season has proven to be one of their best thus far, winning second place at their first competition, and the top honors at the Florida Cheer and Dance competition.
