Norwalk Cheer Team Takes First Again

NORWALK, Conn. – The Norwalk-based Xtreme Cheer team won first place in one division and third in two others in the Beast of the East competition last weekend in Hartford.

Xtreme’s Junior level 3 team, Shimmer, won first place in a field of six teams from Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts. Shimmer is a 20-member girls team ages 14-and-under.

Members of Shimmer include Norwalk’s Chelsey Martylewski, Deanna Magee, Alexa Cassar, Sophia Buitrago and K.K. Benaduci; Westport’s Samantha Schieffelin and Samantha Troy; Stamford’s Lana Foglio and Morgan Personette; Greenwich’s Cameron Monette; Lauren Pelus of Darien; New Canaan’s Carson Allsteadt; Fairfield’s Nicole Wamser; Wilton’s Jessie Favarolo; West Haven’s Lisa Balls; and Orange’s Elle Chukwu. Katie McKinnon and Shylin Santana also compete for the Shimmer.

Xtreme’s 18-and-under co-ed team Blaze took third out of an 8-team field in the two-day event. Shine, an 18-and-under Level 2 all-girls team, also finished third.

The cheerleaders are preparing for their biggest events of the season, the U.S. Spirit National Championships in Orlando, Fla., in March and the United State All-Star Federation world championships in April.

Xtreme Cheer is expanding to a facility in Hopewell Junction, N.Y. It plans a grand opening at Angie’s Gymnastics on Feb. 18 from 1 to 5 p.m. Xtreme Cheer is coached by Mike and Dana Talbot. Find out more about the team on its website .
