Blue Raiders baseball team hosts cheer competition, raises funds

Posted

The Middletown Blue Raiders baseball team hosted a cheerleading competition Feb. 10. 

Forty-two cheer teams came to compete in the 18th Cupid Showdown.

In addition to the competition, people in attendance could shop at various vendor tables and choose from a huge selection of food gathered from donations from parents and local businesses.

“I’d like to thank all of our volunteers including the players, coaches and parents for helping make our first cheerleading competition a success,” Middletown head varsity baseball coach Mike Lupia said. “This is a huge fundraiser for our baseball program, and we look forward to continuing this tradition in the future.”

Cheerleading teams were both all-star and recreational, from ages 5 to 18.

Money raised will be used for equipment, jerseys and team building activities for the players and coaches. 

The team’s season opener is at 4:30 p.m. March 22 at Boiling Springs.

The home opener is at noon March 23 against CD East.  Youth Day for all LSTAA and MABA players will be at 4:30 p.m. May 2 vs. Steel-High.
