LEXINGTON, S.C. — Lexington High Varsity Cheerleader Peri Jayne Skipper was named the 2015 4A State Competitive Cheer Player of the Year at a Player of the Year luncheon that the South Carolina Coaches Association of Women’s Sports conducted recently.

On November 21, 2015, the LHS competitive cheer team won the 4A Competitive Cheer State Championship at the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia. The top 16 teams in the 4A division qualified to compete in the South Carolina High School League State Competitive Cheer Championships.
“We are very proud of our cheerleaders and how well they represent Lexington High on and off the mat,” said Lexington High Athletic Director Josh Stepp.
The LHS competitive cheer team is coached by Shannon Canady and Leigh Watson.
