Missoula, MT – The Stanley Blue Jays Cheer Team took home 2nd place in their first appearance at the Montana Griz All-Star Cheer Competition.

The Blue Jays were able to spend some time learning from the University of Montana Cheer Team, an experience that helped prepare them for some tough out of state competition. “This was such a positive experience for all involved and the girls were able to learn a lot of new things,” said Stanley Blue Jay coach Dawn Nelson. “The other teams were extremely helpful and encouraging, this helped to make our team’s first all star event a huge success.”
