San Pablo Cowboys cheer squads qualify for national tournament


This group of local girls have given their hometown a reason to cheer.

The San Pablo Cowboys Division 8 & 10 Cheer Squad qualified  for the American Youth Football and Cheer National Championship competition in Orlando, Fla., on Dec. 11.

The competition features over 200 cheer, dance and step squads nationwide competing for the national title. The Cowboys squads qualified by placing in the top three in one of the national organization’s eight regional competitions.

Now, the program is asking for the community’s support in raising funds for the East Coast trip, which costs roughly $980 per student-athlete.

Those wishing to contribute to their trip can make a tax deductible donation to the San Pablo Cowboys Youth Association (Tax ID: 46 3547410), mailing address 4266 Appian Way #D, El Sobrante, CA, 94801.

“These amazing student athletes need your help to make it to Orlando t compete amongst the nation’s best and work to bring home a national title to the City of San Pablo,” said “We, as a community, have an opportunity to further inspire these young ladies to soar to great heights…please help us sent the message to these talented young ladies that you believe in their abilities.”
