Essex varsity cheerleaders Olivia Baker and Kirsten Kalkas were both selected to the 2023 Iowa Shrine Bowl All-Star Cheerleading Team after being nominated by their coach Mary Ohnmacht. The Iowa Shrine Bowl All-Star Cheer Squad is made up of the best cheerleaders in the state of Iowa. Olivia was chosen to be on the ICCA All-Star Squad that will perform at the Basketball All-Star Tournament in March. The All-Star committee selected its team based off of try out videos and coaches recommendations. Seniors with similar scores were chosen over younger cheerleaders. Kirsten who is a sophomore, was chosen as an alternate. Congratulations girls!
