Norfolk Catholic cheer team representing in London and Orlando

December 31, 2018

NORFOLK - Two Norfolk Catholic cheerleaders will be performing in the London New Year’s Day Parade and the rest of the team will perform during the pregame of the Citrus Bowl in Orlando Florida.

Charli and Reilly Schlomer are two of more than 800 high school cheerleaders from across the U.S. who will be performing in London.

The cheerleaders that will attend the Citrus Bowl are captains Emma Fanta and Ryli Mitchell, as well as Hailey Blank, Victoria Clinch, and Nicki Otero.

One of the coaches Lisa Mitchell says their team and the two cheerleaders going to London got selected at a camp in Omaha this past summer.

“Some of the girls tried out for all-American and Charli and Reilly were chosen as all-American cheerleaders and so that’s what gained them the honor to go to London. Our whole squad got the spirit award so getting that kind of distinction gets the whole squad invited to the Citrus Bowl.”

The London New Year’s Day Parade is set to start at noon Tuesday, and people in the US can tune in on RFD-TV at 6 am Central Standard Time. The Citrus Bowl will be Tuesday as well kicking off at noon.
