In-Game Competition Winners

In-Game Competition Winners

During the Sixth and Seventh Region girls and boys basketball tournaments, school cheerleaders were judged by Kentucky Association of Prep Organization Sponsors (KAPOS) judges for the annual “In-Game Cheer Competition”.

Squads were judged on promoting spirit, efforts to lead the crowd, stunts, floor cheers, and sideline chants. The same scoring is done at the state level for the Sweet 16 tournament. “In-Game” also promotes key safety procedures as judges notify squads of any penalties given. If a team scores high and is free of illegality, then it is rewarded and recognized in an awards ceremony.

This year, the Louisville Women’s Sports Network was proud to sponsor the “In-Game Cheer Competition”. Here is the listing of the champion and runner-up from each tournament…
