Cheerleaders to compete with expanding program

By Micah Sperling

The cheerleading squad is primed for this season with more members than ever before.

This year, there are 23 cheerleaders on the team. In addition to cheering at the school’s sporting events, the team will take part in both dance and cheer competitions throughout the year. The team did not compete last year.

There are just two seniors and four juniors on the team—17 additional members are freshmen and sophomores.

Three of the team’s members suffered injuries during cheer practice this offseason including a broken collarbone and nose.
