Baldwin's competitive cheerleaders are visiting Chocolate Town this weekend.

The Baldwin girls have advanced to the PIAA competitive spirit championships to be held Friday and Saturday at Hershey's Giant Center.

Baldwin qualified in the medium squad division at the recent WPIAL competition held at North Hills Middle School.

“They had a great time competing and representing their school at the WPIAL (championships),” Taryn Madden, Baldwin's head coach, said. “It was great to see so many teams in our area together at the level of the rest of the high school sports.

Baldwin team members consist of seniors Leah Bartos, Nicole Carretta, Jennifer Debski, Amanda Dowd, Hannah Dziamniski, Kayla Henchell, Morgan Hudson, Kaethe Kuss, Alexa Przywara and Kelli Rojtas; juniors Samantha Butelli, Dani DuBrosky, Lauren Eisel, Breanna Eyles, Cassie Fischer, Mia Rodgers, Megan Staab and Stephanie Teahan; and sophomores Mariah Pacella and Samantha Przywara.

“They are very excited to continue on to the PIAA championships,” Madden said.

Baldwin finished fifth at the WPIAL championship with a 186.5-point total.

Routines at the WPIAL competition included a cheer, stunts, tumbling, pyramids and dancing within a time limit.

Pine-Richland won its second WPIAL Class AAA title this year. The two other WPIAL champs were Highlands in Class AA and Chartiers-Houston in Class A.
