Cheer leading

“We have not competed yet this season. Our competitive season will kick off on November 7th. We are excited to kick off competitions and get back to some normalcy. Last year, our competitions were virtual which was very challenging. Not having the fans or judges in front of you made it difficult to get excited. The team is very anxious to get back to in-person competitions. We had quite a few seniors graduate last year. With that being said, we are working on building the team’s strength and ability in terms of difficulty with stunting. However, they are doing AMAZING! The team is dedicated to putting the necessary time in in order to be successful. Their tumbling has come such a long way!”
