Just one round of competition remains for Jones County’s competitive cheerleading squad until the stakes reach their apex in the region meet on Feb. 6. The Cheer Hounds got a strong taste of what they’ll face then over the weekend at the Quest For The Best meet at Ola, placing second among a group of teams that included those within their region such as Ola, Locust Grove and Eagles Landing.

On the middle school side, Jones County won first place.

“We did good overall, and we’ll see some of these same teams next weekend,” Jones County head coach Lelin Holt said. “We’re preparing for region to try and place high with this being our first year being an all-girl team.

Regardless, the mere fact that JCHS is competing is reason for excitement for the Cheer Hounds given that the season was delayed in starting across the board by the GHSA due to COVID-19 concerns.

“They are very thankful that we can compete right now,” Holt said.
