Mayor Alonzo Jones, on behalf of City Council, recognized on Tuesday night three George Washington High School athletic squads and a youth soccer player chosen to attend an elite camp in London.

The squads recognized were the George Washington High Boys Basketball Team, the George Washington High School Varsity Basketball Cheerleaders, and the George Washington High School Junior Varsity Basketball Cheerleaders.

The basketball team recently won the Class 4 Boys State Championship.

The varsity basketball cheer squad became the first in school history to win a national cheer title when it won the 2018 Powerhouse Spirit National Stomp and Shake Championships.

The junior varsity cheer squad won a national cheer title last weekend in the 2019 Powerhouse Spirit National Stomp and Shake Championships.

The youth soccer player was Cameron Stephens, an 11-year-old local player who has been selected to attend a nine-day elite training academy in London hosted by the United Kingdom’s West Ham United Football Club.

The honors were presented during the City Council's business session.
