Cheer team stays on track with competition and Peewee camp

Despite difficulties finding a coach both this season and last season, the cheer team has continued to prepare for competitions and successfully organized the annual Peewee cheer camp.

The cheerleaders started getting ready for the competition season on Sunday, Sept. 28, by spending eight hours learning their competition routine, choreographed and taught by the UC Berkeley cheer coach.

“The choreography was really good and different than what we are [used] to,” said senior Jessica Uong. “The best part of the day was the feeling at the end when I realized that we have our routine completed and that all we have to do now is continue to practice it.”

After not having a competition team last year, the girls cannot wait to get back into in the rhythm of competition.

The team consists of 20 girls who are looking forward to focusing on competitions.

“I love being on stage and working with my team to throw girls in the air,” said freshman Camilla Taysi. “I love seeing the final product. Being able to go on stage and perform together is going to be amazing.”

In addition to preparing for their competition season, the cheer team also held a successful Peewee cheer camp. The Peewee cheer camp is a yearly event that the team puts on for children in the community ages 3-11 who are interested in learning how to cheer.

This year, the peewee camp had 20 sign-ups preceding the camp. The cheer team practiced with the participants three times during the week of Oct. 13 to prepare a performance and cheers for the football game tonight, Oct. 17.

“The kids benefit a lot from Peewee because it introduces them to cheerleading early on so they don’t get a stereotypical view about it, and they might even want to do it in high school,” said senior Megan Marshall.
