The cheer team had a competition on Saturday, Sept. 21 at Meyer gym to earn money for their team. The whole team was able to participate in the routine, and 75 percent of the members were performing for the first time.
While the grand total is still being tallied, the team is anticipating that they made somewhere between $2,000 and $3,000. With that, they are planning to purchase new uniforms for the whole team.
“[The cheer team] did amazing, and we got lots of feedback from the judges,” said Klarinda Tutterow, Scottsburg High School cheer coach.
Because the team was hosting the competition, it was not eligible to compete but still performed an exhibition routine.
“We were extremely loud, and we held the crowd’s attention the entire time. We weren’t actually able to compete in the competition, but we still did really well,” said Kennedy Stivers (10).
The cheer team was able to bring the state judges that judge for the Indiana Cheer Competition down to judge their competition at Meyer Gym.
“The competition we held was a great way to earn money, as well as get feedback from the judges that judge a bigger competition later. That way, we can work on improving throughout the year and making sure our performances are spotless,” said Lily Walsh (10).
While the cheer team is looking forward and working on its performances, it is also excited to grow together both on cheering skills and as a family.
“I can’t wait to see what this season entails for growth and bonding,” said Addy Borden (9).
