Cheers to Calyx All Girls

KUALA LUMPUR: Calyx All Girls from SMJK Katholik overcame an eight-time winner to clinch the top prize in Cheer 2018.

The team topped the coveted High School Senior All-Girl Level 4 category in the final showdown at Quill City Mall here.

It broke the winning streak of defending champions, Cyrens from Sri Kuala Lumpur, which had been No.1 for eight years.

Calyx captain Tung Mei Yee, 17, was elated that their hard work paid off.

“We trained for seven days, spending three-and-a-half hours each time, and more starting in April.

“The team improved day by day and I’m happy that people found our pyramid to be beautiful,” she said.

Cyrens took second place this year.

The crowd that gathered at the mall’s main atrium from 8am to 7pm yesterday watched in awe as 38 teams put forward their finest tumbles, twists and jaw-dropping stunts to impress the judges.

Cheer 2018 head judge Lim Chin Hau said many teams attempted difficult stunts and the competition was stiff this year, especially in the High School Junior All-Girl Level 3 category.

Other winners were SUC Senior from Sun-way University College under the University Co-ed Elite category, Calyx Junior from SMJK Katholik under High School Junior All-Girl Level 3, and Zodiac from SMK Kepong under the High School Senior Co-Ed Level 4 category.

The competition this year also introduced a new category – Pee Wee Team Level 1 for primary school students in which Little Lynx from SK Bukit Damansara won, beating nine other teams.

Cheer 2018 was organised by Star Media Group with Appeton Teengrow as the sponsor, Quill City Mall KL as the official venue sponsor and Sunway Education Group as the prize sponsor.

The product sponsors were Sunway Lost World Of Tambun, Kao Malaysia, F&N, EIG Pharma Asia, Shopee and Reckitt Benckiser.

The event was supported by the Youth and Sports Ministry, Education Ministry and the Cheerleading Association and Register of Malaysia.
