MHS Cheer Wants to Reclaim State Title

There are few teams for which finishing second in the state could be seen as taking a step backwards, but that is the case for the Milford High cheerleading team, which took the silver last fall after three straight state championships.
Head coach Heather Johnson says her team is taking aim at getting back to the top this year in the state competition later this month.
"We want to regain that state title," Johnson said. "That is the goal we have been working towards."
So far, Milford has made a strong case for why it should be a title contender. In four invitational tournaments this year, the Scarlet Hawks have won all four in their division and three times have been the top scoring team in very deep fields. Milford finished first among 38 teams at a competition in Marlboro and was the top squad among 50 teams in Natick.
Milford has also won tournaments hosted by Franklin and Bellingham.
"The team has been working super hard and they are very talented," Johnson said. "Our skill was there, it was just a matter of execution, and we have been executing."
Milford has 19 athletes, members of the competition squad, and four captains who have helped lead the way.
Seniors Katherine Schuler, Caitlyn Baglione, Ally Nesta and Miyoko Yancey are the captains of this fall's team. "The captains have done an awesome job of leading the team so far," Johnson said. "They are able to balance enough fun and structure and I think that has helped with the team respecting them as captains and working hard as a unit."
The captains and fellow senior Elena BonTempo are among a group who has worked with the youth program and continue a tradition of building a strong cheerleading program at MHS, Johnson said. The Scarlet Hawks have also taken advantage of their athleticism. A number of the team's standouts also excel in other sports like track and field or basketball.
"The kids on my team are so athletic and cheerleading pushes those athletic envelopes," Johnson said. "The kids that love cheerleading love the unique intensity, the strength, agility, speed, flexibility. It takes a lot and they are loving what they are doing and pushing themselves more than they realized."
