The Whitman-Hanson Regional High cheerleading team won its 29th Patriot League title in a row.
Kayla Crawford won seven Patriot League titles on the mat at Whitman-Hanson Regional High.
Now the 2012 grad has one as a coach.
Last Thursday, Feb. 17, the Panthers captured their 29th straight Patriot League title at Duxbury High School.
“It 100 percent feels better to win as a coach,” Crawford said. “The competition is much tougher now than it was back then. I’m so proud of the girls for hitting their best routine of the season thus far and winning the title again. The girls have been working so hard to keep the streak going.”
Crawford took over the reins of the Panthers in December after Alyssa Pietrasik stepped down because she’s expecting a child.
“Alyssa has been very helpful getting me adjusted to the coaching position,” Crawford said. “She has kept everything very organized which has made my transition very smooth. She has been very supportive all while giving me space to bond and build my own relationship with the team.”
Next up for W-H is the South regional championship on Sunday, March 6 at Bellingham High.
“Our goal moving forward is to increase some difficulty in our routine and clean up the little things so our performance is sparkling clean,” Crawford said.
The Panthers’ rosters consists of: Tiffany Joyce (captain), Brooke Balfe (captain), Leah Cataldo, Emily Diehl, Sheridan Ewell, Isabella Furtado, Bridget Iannone, Sophia Kearns, Jessica LaBonte, Melissa Murray and Kara Sheehan.
