The junior is representing the Cougars as an individual this season.
Canby junior Kiersten OShaughnessy took third place as an individual Jan. 18 during the Pacer Invitational cheerleading competition at Lakeridge High School in Lake Oswego.
The only member of Canbys cheerleading squad participating as an individual, OShaughnessy completed a 1-minute routine that was scored on tumbling, originality, dance and ability to involve the crowd.
OShaughnessy, who is a third-year varsity cheerleader under Cougars coach Karlie Richardson, was up against students from Lake Oswego, Sherwood and North Marion high schools.
OShaughnessy was scheduled to participate in the Crusader Challenge at Jesuit this past weekend. She plans to wrap up her competitive season Feb. 8 at the Last Chance Cheer Competition in Tualatin.
