CORONA DEL MAR — It was a sort of passing of the torch – make that a baton – from one generation to the next.
The Corona del Mar High School's Sea Kings dominated the gymnasium floor on Thursday as dozens of varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders performed alongside elementary school children in what has become a popular fundraising event for the squads.
Varsity and junior varsity coaches Lauren Anderson and Cami Marseilles had a full day organizing the event while throngs of proud parents looked on from the sidelines of the gym.
It was quite the scene as tykes performed stunts in sync with the older, more experienced cheerleaders.
Welcome to the endproduct of the cheerleading camp, which began a few weeks ago for girls ages 6 to 12. If there were ever a boot camp for cheerleading, this would be it.
Over the course of the past few weeks, the teenagers taught the younger girls the high school cheer and how to perform cartwheels and other assorted stunts.
