Senior ♦ Competitive Cheer

DeGraw – a Division 1 all-state first-team selection last season – was among standouts as Stoney Creek won the Division 1 competition at Saturday’s Wyandotte Roosevelt Invitational. The Cougars scored 790.16 points to edge rival Rochester Adams by two-hundredths of a point. Adams was second and Stoney Creek third – behind champion Rochester High – at last season’s Division 1 Final.

A dancer growing up, DeGraw began cheer in sixth grade and also made the all-state second team as a junior when Stoney Creek finished Division 1 runner-up. Stoney Creek will compete in the same District as Adams and Rochester on Feb. 16 as the Cougars begin their pursuit of a first Finals championship since 2019. DeGraw will next attend University of Michigan, and study biochemistry.
