California Spirit Elite, an All-Star competitive cheerleading team with about half its members coming from Danville, took home top honors at the Jamz Xtreme Cheerleading Championships at the University of Pacific in Stockton recently.
The CSE Junior Level 2 All Star squad tumbled, stunted and danced its way to a nearly flawless performance, winning the team a full paid bid to the International All Levels Championship to be held next spring in Los Angeles. The squad not only earned the high point score in the Junior division but also in the entire competition, making CSE the first team on the West Coast to win a paid $4,500 bid.
The basket brigade
Students at Los Cerros Middle School joined together in their annual Basket Brigade last week to gather food items to be given out for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The students stuffed 300 laundry baskets with the fixings for Thanksgiving meals, most of which was collected during the previous few weeks in a food drive.
