GLOCESTER – Suffering a heartbreaking loss to North Smithfield in last spring’s RIIL Division II championships did not sit well with the Ponaganset High cheerleading squad. Neither did placing a close second to Lincoln – by only 0.4 of a point – at the RICCA Division III competition on March 5 in the Chieftains’ gym.

“But the kids were not sad,” admitted head coach Meghan White. “They used (finishing second to Lincoln) as motivation to put in the work they needed (in the days) leading up to the RIIL Championships.”
