BANGOR, Maine – The Sumner cheerleading squad has been on the precipice of an Eastern Maine championship for the last two years, but could never get over the hump.

The Tigers from East Sullivan finally did Saturday, as they won the first Class C regional crown in program history at the Bangor Auditorium.

Coach Monica Chipman’s squad compiled 132.4 points to out-distance runner-up Houlton, which tallied 123.1

The top six squads will head to the state championships on Feb. 6 in Augusta, so that means Washington Academy of East Machias, Central of Corinth, defending regional champ Dexter and Orono will join the Tigers and Shiretowners.

Sumner’s difficult routine featured a little bit of everything, from dynamite tumbling from senior Jacob Backman — the lone senior on the squad — to three double-down twists, high basket tosses and clean backtucks.

The Tigers are made up of Ashley Andrews, Backman, Josie Barker, Brianna Bishko, Whitney Doughty, Sarah Frost, Emily Ingalls, Jordyn Knowles, Maria Lockhart, Kelsey Martin, Jalisa Patten, Brooke Raynor, Jordan Rivers, Haley Sandstrom, Ashtyn Thomas and Alexandria Tracy.
