The St. Dominic Regional High School competition cheering squad recently added to their long list of accomplishments with a plaque at the Western Maine Class C Regional Championships. With a routine based on the theme stating, “Girls Can Rock Too,” the Saints shook up the floor with a score of 133.3 at the Augusta Civic Center on January 29th. This final tally even accounts for a 10 point deduction after two tumbling mishaps on the mats. St. Dom’s finished a full 17 points ahead of Dirigo and Lisbon, both stiff competition on the floor.

The Saints have left a dazzling legacy behind them in recent years. In 1992, 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2003, the girls took home State Titles, and have always been in contention for the crown in non-winning years. Just last winter, they finished 3rd in this same event, behind Dirigo and Lisbon. Yet in the State Finals, they reclaimed their unofficial “Best in the West” title by finishing 3rd behind Eastern Maine schools Houlton and Washington Academy.

This year, in the Western Maine Conference Competition, the girls managed to grab a spot behind Class B competitors Gorham and Wells. But to the shock of many, they tallied the highest score in all of the Class C Regional Championships; accounting both the East and West. When they hit the floor this weekend in Bangor for a chance at a 6th crown, they hope to recover their glory and prove that at St. Dom’s, “Girls Can Rock Too.”
