Cheer news

So, did I tell you I lost 3 cheerleaders over the holiday break? Well, I did. One to medical issues, one to grades, and one to finances. That means that our team went from 9 to 6 members. Unfortunately that means that a lot of our pyramids are out of the question (not enough people) as well as limiting a LOT of the stunts we do.

Fortunately though we had a transfer student show interest (aka asked when tryouts were). The advisor decided to have her practice with us a couple of times this week and see if we could just have her join the squad right now. Wonder of wonders she is pretty decent so we have ourselves a new cheerleader! (have you ever heard of an athlete joining a team midseason though? Kind of weird, huh?) Woot!

Let's just see if she causes as much drama as our last two freshman...

Sorry to hear you lost a third of your team over the holiday break - sheesh! That's a big (and sudden) drop.

Hopefully the new girl works out okay.

Well that is sucking! Hopefully the girl with sucky grades pulls them up soon and can rejoin and the new girl works out!

I've heard you mention coaching before, but I didn't realize it was cheerleading. I also coach the cheerleaders at my school. My problem is that I can never seem to get ALL the girls there at the same practice, so we never seem to get anything totally ready for games, pep rallies, etc!
