And the Spirit Stick Goes to.....

For those of you who may not be "down with the cheer lingo" or for the very few people out there that haven't seen Bring It On, the Spirit Stick is sacred to cheer.

On Cheer NY the Spirit Stick is given out each month by our two captains. I know what you are wondering..."How does one win such a coveted cheer prize?" Well, it's not easy; the winner of the Spirit Stick eximplifies everything that Cheer NY strives to be. They are spirited, outgoing, positive, giving, kind, always willing to help others and so on. Really the list is endless.

And who won this month's highest honor? The lovely Iliana F (shown here with Dan V, all dolled up for the CNY awards dinner)!!

Below is some information I managed to get out of her during her demanding schedule of being fabulous.

Nicknames: Ilz, Ilz got da skilzzz, Margarita
Hometown: Longmeadow, MA
Occupation: Nickelodeon drudge
When did you join CNY: 2005
Previous cheer experience: Cheered in highschool and college
Favorite stunt: Hmmm good question..there are a lot of fancy stunts but there's nothing like a super high basket toss to take your breath away
Which do you prefer basing or flying?: I love basing but at the moment I'm really digging flying because it's a new challenge to me.
Favorite CNY moment: Performing at the 2006 Gay Games

What can we say....."She's sexy, she's cute, she's popular to boot!" (sorry, had to throw in another Bring It On reference) Congrats Ilz!
