G. Ray Bodley High School in Fulton hosted the second annual Love to Cheer Invitational last Saturday.
The Love To Cheer Invitational is the only Section 3 cheerleading competition held in Oswego County.
Boosters for Fulton’s Cheerleading Program sponsored the event, which featured more than 300 cheerleaders from over 15 High Schools. Fulton’s varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders were one of five Oswego County from Oswego County to take part in the competition.
Other teams from Oswego County featured in the event included Phoenix, Hannibal, Central Sqaure and Sandy Creek. Sackets Harbor, Bishop Ludden, Baldwinsville, Cato-Meridian, Central-North Syracuse, South Jefferson, Cincinatus, Utica-Proctor, New York Mills, Syracuse Academy of Science, Madison Central and Westhill also competed.

In the junior varsity medium school non-tumbling event, Phoenix earned a first place finish. Syracuse Academy of Science followed the Lady Firebirds in second place.
