As the lone varsity team not permitted to compete during the 2020-21 school year, the Scarsdale cheerleaders are concerned that 2021-22 will be more of the same, so they, along with their parents and coach, have decided to get ahead of the curve and plead their case.
Twenty-seven teams competed safely at the Section 1 winter cheerleading championships. Scarsdale High School was not one of those teams. And, as of now, the girls will not compete in the current fall 2 season either.
It almost happened.
Scarsdale coach Stacy Monteiro didn’t want to talk to anyone after watching her team perform at the 70th Annual Westchester County Cheerleading Invitational Wednesday.
Stacy Monteiro doesn’t want to wait another 10 years to make semifinals at UCA Nationals.
