Ramona Pop Warner cheerleaders are preparing for regional competition after winning awards at the local Palomar Conference Cheer and Dance Competition.

At the local competition, held Oct. 28, at the San Diego State University Viejas Arena, the cheerleaders  competed with approximately 70 cheer squads in their conference. Winning first place were Ramona’s  Jr Pee Wee division and  Pee Wee division. The Midget division earned third place.

The Flag and Mighty Mite cheer teams also performed, but at a non-competitive level.

“We are so proud of our girls. Their hard work, dedication and teamwork has paid off,” said Tanya SanFilippo, Ramona Pop Warner cheer director.

The Jr Pee Wee and Pee Wee squads will be competing in the regional competition on Nov. 18 in Long Beach. If they place there, they will move on to the national competition in Florida in December.

The Midget division will start a new series of competitions with JAMZ, starting this month. The teams thank parents, local businesses, coaches and staff, board members, and the community for their support, said SanFilippo.
