Cheerleaders at a small school on the Southern Shore of the Avalon Peninsula have tumbled their way to the top, winning a national title and a fourth-pace finish at a world event. So, how did Mobile Central High School — with only students — produce one of the best cheerleading teams in the country?
Whelan was a Grade 12 student and a member of the basketball team when she started coaching the Mobile Monarchs "for fun. Within a year, the team that had only ever performed for fun in front of the school before was ready to compete. The bases and back spots lift and throw the flyers into the air, and help keep them up there during a stunt.
You get all the cool pictures," said Bridget Keating, who used to be a flyer but is now a base. Whelan, now a teacher in Avondale, drives across the Witless Bay Line twice weekly to work with the team.
Undefeated at the provincial level, the Monarchs won a national title in and more recently went to a world cheerleading competition at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. It's what you love to do. Whelan said the calibre of the competition in Florida "was just crazy," but hopes it will serve to inspire the Monarchs.
It's good for the girls to see that type of cheerleading.
The girls said everyone who tries out for the team is given a spot on the Monarchs and the six years spent at the school give them all a chance to get good, if they work hard. Meanwhile, Tobin said the payoff of all that hard work is big and she can't imagine life after the team. Social Sharing. I'm going to leave this team next year, but it will never leave me.
