On Aug. 12, Jupiter High honored their five state champions of 2017-2018: baseball, lacrosse, diving, cheer and dance.

The state champs marched from Bowlero on Maplewood Dr. to the high school entrance on Toney Penna Dr. Leading the way was Jupiter High’s award-winning band. Along the parade route, parents, students, alumni and locals cheered on the Warriors, expressing their support and congratulations for an amazing year of success.

“I went to see the parade because I wanted to support all of my friends who were marching,” junior Madi Leonard said.

The 2018 competitive cheer team won states for the first time ever and continued their reign as champions at the regional level. They eventually placed fourth in the nation among some tough competition in Orlando.

“We are so excited and honored to be a part of this special event. Congrats again to all of the Warrior State Champs,” senior Hannah Draizin said on the cheer team’s Instagram page.

In May, the varsity boys’ lacrosse team became the first public school ever to win the Florida High School Athletic Association state championship for boys’ lacrosse.

“I was so proud to see these student athletes recognized for their hard work and dedication. It was great to have one last celebration of an amazing and historic season,” Malinda Linkhorst, mother of lacrosse player Jack Linkhorst, said.

Diver Will Lefebvre took home an individual state championship title in Nov. 2017 and was honored in the parade as he walked alongside the cheerleaders, with his teammates cheering him on along the route.

In June, Jupiter High’s baseball team claimed its first state title with a win over Timber Creek. This was their third time competing in the state championship, and they were excited to march in the parade since their win came after school was out.

“It was fun and nice to see everyone out there supporting us,” Andy Mook, head baseball coach, said. “It was my first time in a parade, and I was humbled by the support.”

The Warrior Dance Team won their first state title in spring 2017; however, the team’s success at their local competition in 2018 and their invitation to march in the 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade earned them a spot in the local parade.

“I loved seeing all of the teams who won states come together and march because we all worked hard to get what we wanted and it paid off,” dance team captain Kaya Mancini said.

The Spirit of Jupiter marching band and color guard played crowd favorites like “Hey Baby” by Bruce Channel and the Warrior fight song. The band was crowned Grand Champion at The University Classic FMBC Regional at University High School in Orlando on Oct. 21, 2017, with a score of 85.40.
