Winder-Barrow was not only at its best at the end of the season. It was basically perfect.
The cheer Doggs posted a 280 — its highest score of the season — to edge out second- place Ola (278) for the co-ed state title Saturday in Columbus. Two-time defending state champion Peachtree Ridge had 270 and was third.
Winder-Barrow coach Jerrie Hulsey said her team peaked at state and had the routine to prove it.
“I’m telling you, there was no flaw, not one mistake,” said Hulsey, who’s guided the Winder-Barrow cheerleading squad since 1992. “We knew it was going to take that to win.”
The win was especially sweet for Winder-Barrow’s 10 seniors, who had to settle for runners-up honors last year. This year’s senior class includes Crystal Hodge, Laura Beth Brown, Lauren Geiger, Ashley Rogers, Ashley Healan, Austin Sorrels, John Reese Fortson, Kody Sanders, Nick Oxley and Jonathan Rodriquez.
