Summertime success: Yukon pom squad shines at OU camp

Blue was the desired color for the Yukon High School pom squad last week, as they traveled to Norman to participate in the OU Pom Camp.

The camp lasted four days with each girl on the roster being graded individually on her performance. If the judges were impressed, they awarded blue ribbons to each individual.

Yukon took 14 girls to the OU camp and Yukon left with 14 blue ribbons.

“Very exciting,” Yukon pom sponsor Rebecca Reape said. “These young ladies work so hard and to see all of them get recognized and rewarded for their hard work is great to see.”

On top of being graded individually, the Yukon pom squad learned three routines and performed their home routine that they had been working on for the past several months in front of judges. They took second-place in the home-routine competition.

The Yukon girls also received the Super Spirit Stick Award and the Leadership Award, which is voted on by the other pom teams at the camp.

Yukon’s pom coach Whitney Duty was also named the Outstanding Coach at the OU camp.

The YHS pom girls will be off for the remainder of the summer until the end of July, when they start practicing for the upcoming school year.

Yukon will host a fundraiser car wash on June 24 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Homeland on intersection of NW 10th St. and Cornwell.
