Well over 200 North Bergen students participated in the annual cheerleading exhibition at the high school gymnasium on Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017. About 10 teams showed their stuff, performing self-choreographed routines to music they selected.
Participants range in age from 4 years old to 15. Following the well-received performances, each cheerleader received a participation award and had their picture taken with Mayor Nicholas Sacco and Parks & Recreation Commissioner Hugo Cabrera.
Nicole Bellucci served as cheerleading coordinator, and North Bergen resident Ashley Gonzalez, a cheerleader with the Jets, attended the event to show her support.
