Elite Cheer-Nastics had five girls qualify for STATE this year. Each year there is a qualifying score that must be met to attend state. ECN’s standard for STATE is higher than the state’s requirement since it is a higher level of competition.

Congratulations also go out to Azylea Allen, Level 2, Gracelynn Leone Level 2, and Norah McGrath Level 2 for qualifying for State.
