GREENWICH, Conn. -- Three teams from CT Spirit All-Stars from Spirit Zone Too in Greenwich won gold medals recently at the U.S. Finals, an all-star cheerleading event held in Providence, R.I.
Tanzanites, Malachites and Specrolites all won gold. The Amazonites and Alexandrites teams also performed at this competition.
All three of their gold medals were awarded to their all-star prep teams (tiny, youth and junior), which began training in early December were all crowned U.S. champions.
The special-needs team (Alexandrites) performed a stellar exhibition that brought tears to everyone’s eyes. The junior full-year team (Amazonites) performed a near-perfect routine in a competitive division.
A team can qualify for the U.S. Finals by attending any of the 250 various qualifying events. The team must finish in first to fifth place in their division in order to qualify.
Spirit Zone Too Owner Anne Aguiar-Asta said, “What a storybook ending to a magical season. ... I love each and everyone one of my athletes and coaches, and am so grateful to have been able to share this amazing journey in their lives with them. I hope they take away from this season more than the placements, trophies and the wonderful friendships that they have made, but the ability to know that anything is possibly if you believe.”
