The heart and soul of CB Drifter pride

Black & Gold pride thrives in the Drifter heartland! Longtime cheerleading head coach Jennifer Grigsby has her program headed in the right direction. After winning the Northern Neck District Championship for the past two seasons in a row, the Colonial Beach High School competition team is back to take on the best programs in

the district.
Year after year, regardless of the fact that Colonial Beach is one of the smallest schools in the state, it continues to field talented sports teams. The Drifters finished seventh out of 12 teams that competed at the Singe A State Championships. The margin of 5 points made a significant difference in the in final count, as the Drifters missed the making the top five by 6.5 points.

“We take great pride in the fact that we were the smallest single-A school represented at the State level last year,” Grigsby said. “When you’re faced with having less kids to pool from, you have to work that much harder.”

Colonial Beach has five returning competition cheerleaders, and of the five athletes, all have mastered tumbling. Since Aug. 1, the Drifters have spent long hours learning and mastering every aspect of cheerleading.

The task at hand for Grigsby is to transition eight new cheerleaders into seasoned competitors. Can this monumental endeavor be done before the Northern Neck District Championship?  Grigsby is confident that her program will step to the plate and perform with a clutch routine.

“This team is a very strong group, sideline and cheer competition wise,” Grigsby said. “I think the transition from sideline to competition will be very smooth — I have high expectations for them, and I would definitely like to return to the State Championships. The goal is to place in the top five in the championship, and make it to the final round.”

Known for grooming championship teams through camps and recreation leagues, Grigsby is firm believer in exposing kids to the fundamentals associated with the sport of cheerleading at an early age. For the past six years, Grigsby and her cast of varsity cheerleaders have volunteered their expertise at the annual Drifter Cheerleading Camp. The venue for the camp is the Drifterdome. For five days, aspiring cheerleaders, ages 9-12, learn a variety of material, play games, tumble, implement motions and jump techniques.

“We try and instill cheerleading skills at an early age, so by the time they reach the high school level, it will already be there,” Grigsby said.

Grigsby will lead in the capacity of the sideline and competition coach. Seniors Carley Graves and Angela Rose will server as sideline team captains.
