‘Stunting’ at Kensington Palace

Apache cheerleaders spends Christmas break in London


How many high school cheerleaders can say they stunted at the gates to Kensington Palace. Well, four for certain. Four Gonzales High School varsity cheerleaders spent part of their Christmas break in London.

The All American Cheerleaders, Bailey Bennett, Krystalynn Buesing, Amerie White and Presleigh Zella, went to London to participate in the capital city's annual New Year's Day parade and fulfil an invite from the BBC Morning Show.

While in London the girls were also privy to a number of tours and took out time to see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and even to fly the Come and Take It flag over the cannon at Windsor Castle.

Most of the girls’ excitement revolved around their love of cheer, but they were ready to see the sights and architecture of London and make as many new friends as possible.

The four were a part of a huge group of All American Cheerleaders and spent time together and separately, spreading their love of cheer and their hometown, representing Gonzales with style and grace.

Buesing said she for certain took her Gonzales pride and aspirations with her.

"I aspire to be a role model for younger girls, not only in my community, but in London as well," she said.

While there were some pre-flight nerves as the girls prepared to fly out of Houston, as far as the parade and visit to the BBC everything went off without a hitch – or even a case of the jitters.

Zella said there was no time or place for upset nerves in the girls' busy itinerary.

"This has been my dream since my freshman year when I made All American, and I would not want to pass up this amazing opportunity," she said.
