That’s the spirit! TPHS cheerleaders make All American team


Torrey Pines High School Cheer members attended the National Cheerleaders Association’s summer camp at UCSD from Aug. 3-6. Out of many nominees, the All-American Team was announced. They include (above, l-r): Ashley Cynkin, Jordan Chodorow, Jensin McLachlan (4-time winner), Amanda Yen, Kenna Dugdale and Haley Dinsmore.

The girls were first nominated by their instructors in one of 6 categories: 1) Stunts, 2) Motion technique, 3) Dance, 4) Tumbling, 5) Jumps or 6) Leadership skills. Nominees competed on the last day and were judged on three jumps, a spirited entrance and a camp cheer.
