Azhane Williams and Denise Callaghan-Crespo senior Co-captains are three year varsity letter winners who are united in striving for excellence. They possess irreplaceable work ethic, leadership skills, spirit, drive, and dedication that has earned them the respect of their teammates. Azhane and Denise were instrumental in leading the team to medal at the Big North Cheer Championship, the NJTAC Championship Meet, and for their Second Place Divisional performance in the State Cheer Meet.
