A sizable crowd gathered at Elk County Catholic High School on Saturday morning for the seventh annual ECC Cheer Frenzy.
According to Marlene Stubber, competition director, 14 teams participated in this year's event.
"I was very happy [with the turnout]. I think the gym was full and everyone seemed to be having a lot of fun," Stubber said. "The teams had clean performances [Saturday], which is always a nice bonus. All the team members worked so hard and it's nice to see when they can hit their routine to the best of their ability, and I think we had a lot of clean routines."
Adding to the success of the event was the crowd that filled the school's gymnasium to cheer on the teams.
