The varsity cheer team will take the mat on Nov. 18 at the Expo Center for the first ever state cheer competition. The cheer team will be competing in the class 5A division against 18 other teams. There are three different routines that will be performed including fight song, cheer and a band dance. There is also a crowd involvement score so the louder the fans, the higher the score for the team will be. It will be held at the Expo Center and it is $15 per person, Pre-K and younger get in for free and a $5 parking fee.

“I’m looking forward to spending a lot of time with my team and hopefully winning,” Senior cheer captain, Teresa Osterhaus said.

Every team will perform all three routines during the day and be scored. The top six scores will make it to finals which will then be performed at six that night. KSHSAA decided to create a state cheer competition due to the interest from several coaches to create a way for cheer to actually place and not just get a rating like some of the previous competitions. The cheer team has been practicing their routines at practices and games.

“I am most excited, that KSHSAA has allowed us to compete this year for a state title,” Cheer coach Morgan Whitney said.   

The top three teams in each division will be announced and given trophies.
