Cheer for Cheerleaders!

Sister Sledge participated in her last cheer of the season on Sunday. Her squad competed in the UCA UDA cheer competition series. My daughter's squad placed 4th. This was their first season to compete. I am so proud of 5th grade team and our coaches, Lindy Massey and Susan Masterson.


Our city school's 6th grade team won 2nd place! This was their second year to compete. The team is lead by my good friend, Kym "The Boss" Jordan. This was the only photo I could get, so I apologize for the poor quality. I was on the opposite side of the gym, without the "big girl flash".


Finally, on our team of 5th graders, Nicole W won 5th place in the individual competitions. Individuals had to come up with their own dance routine. They did a chant and a cheer and did this in addition to squad competition.


Congratulations to all! Your hard work was evident in your performances.
I am proud of all of you!

Yeah for those teams!
PS - I ordered the personalized plaques and told them you sent me. Thanks for the help.

YAY! My little sister was the "spirit bunny" of our family and continued all through college and was the school sponsor for about 14 years. She finally gave it up after her third son was born.

So, it might just take Sister places!
