Tri-Town and their Quest to Sucess

Miah Arevalo, Staff Writer

This past week an event called “The Quest” was held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida involving some of our very own students here at Dover Area High School. The Quest is a recreational cheerleading competition that has  teams coming from all over to compete. 

Tri-Town has a total of five teams: Black Ice; a level 4 team, Lady Lightning; a level 3 team, Senior Rain; a level 2 team, Cyclones; a level 1 team, and Whirlwinds; a team for ages 4-8. Sports this year have been a little crazy with having COVID around. Sophomore Saryah Landis, says “we were even lucky to have a season let alone go to this competition.” She explains that they went down to Florida early Thursday morning, had practice Friday evening, and competed Saturday and Sunday. Landis is on Lady Lightning and Black Ice. Lady Lightning did great both days keeping first place ending in Quest champions for level 3. Black Ice had a great performance Saturday taking 2nd place and was able to take first place on Sunday with their amazing performance ending in Quest champions for level 4.

Landis says, “I’m really proud of both of my teams, we worked so hard for this and it feels so deserving.” Tri-town competitive cheerleading has one more competition in Ocean City, and then they will continue onto their 15th year with tryouts for the new season coming up.
