- The EHS team received an NCA Spirit Stick three times during the four day camp.

- The group earned the NCA Herkie Award, given on the last day of camp to the one team that best displayed the founding principles of NCA: positive attitude, teamwork, leadership, work ethic and spirit.

- The NCA Spirit Coaches Award was given on the last day of camp to a single coach at camp who NCA felt best embodied the true meaning of cheer coaching: patience, encouragement , proper technique and a sense of humor. EHS cheer coach Kim Westerberg was chosen for the award.

- Westerberg also was chosen for the NCA Coaches Congeniality Award, voted on by all coaches attending the camp.
