Over Winter Break, three Yorkville High School Varsity Poms members traveled to London to participate in the London New Year's Day parade.

The three Foxettes - Senior Sydney Batchelor and juniors Kelsie Neahring and Chelbie Buckingham - were selected for the trip following the Varsity Summer Camp held at NIU. 

The London parade dates back to the 1920’s and is a celebration of the special
relationship between England and the USA. 

The girls spent the week sight-seeing in London and performed alongside over 8,000 others in the parade.

There were 1,200 dancers and cheerleaders from Varsity in attendance.

Only 25 girls were chosen to be a part of the parade finale and all three YHS varsity poms were among the 25 chosen.

Batchelor, Neahring and Buckingham were also named All-American.

Way to go, ladies!
