Cece Felipe (Cheer) 4 year cheerleader. Cece is a girl who works very hard, is determined and also very thoughtful of others. She has gained lots of skill over the years and we see her as one of our strongest performers during games and routines. She is just wonderful to watch. Cece is the kind of girl all coaches love to coach, taking criquette well, willing to learn, team player and applying what is taught. We will miss her smiling personality at games next year. We wish her the best as she graduates this year.
