2014 AAU Junior Olympic Games Cheerleading RECAP

Give me an A! Give me an A! Give me a U! That's right, the Cheerleading competition swept through the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines for one day of competition on July 31st. Although the event only lasted for just over two hours, the competition was as intense as could be! The day kicked off with team competition, with Cheer FX scoring the top spot in Mini Level 1, Junior Level 2 and Senior Level 3. DAS-zle also took home a gold medal in the Junior Level 1 division. Briley Steffenson, Jamie Barrett and Payton Steffenson all took home first place honors in the solo Mini Level 2, Mini Level 3 and Youth Level 5, respectively. 

After team and solo events, Cheerleading progressed to the Mini-Jump competition where Madison Winterrowd took home the gold! Payton Steffenson grabbed the gold in Youth Jumps with a score of 55. In Mini Level 2 Tumbling, Briley Steffenson came in first place with 17 and Madison Winterrowd came in a close second with 16.75. Jamie Barrett added another gold medal to her collection in the Mini Level 3 Tumbling event and Genna Crafts earned the gold in Mini Level 5 Tumbling. 

At the Youth Level in Tumbling, Jordyn Lee (Level 3), Kailyn Brzozowski (Level 4) and Payton Steffenson (Level 5) all earned the top spot! And last but definitely not least, at the Junior Level in Tumbling Ashley Cork (Level 1), Jean Marie Martin (Level 2), Kierstin Carter (Lever 3) and Katelynn Barnett (Level 5) took home some shiny new, gold medals in their divisions. 

At the end of the meet, the Joel Ferrell Award was given to Payton Steffenson! She competed in three events and walked away with gold medals in all of them! 

Congratulations to everyone who competed in the Cheerleading portion of the 2014 AAU Junior Olympic Games! We hope you enjoyed your time in Des Moines and we hope to see you again next year!
