Cheerleaders In Rebuilding Year
With 12 seniors graduating from last year’s cheerleading squad, it’s a rebuilding year. Laurent Gates and Taylor Wilkinson, co-captains, return to the squad along with Riviera Boatman. “These ladies have been instrumental to our program by helping guide the new girls with learning stunts and routines,” said Coach Melissa Adams.
With several new squad members, Adams says working hard will be key. “Since our team doesn’t compete against another team, I would say our toughest opponent is ourselves,” she added. “Given that we have so many new girls on the team, we need to stay positive when learning new skills and not to get discouraged or frustrated when these skills become difficult.”
