Changes for the Paoli Cheer Team


Calling all students of PHS, it is that time of year again! Football season, which also means cheerleading. This year, the Paoli Cheer Program has a new coach, Brooke Goerres.

¨I am very excited to be working with the JV/Varsity cheerleaders this year. My goal is the same as the coaches that came before me, to continue to build the cheer program at PHS,” said Goerres.

The rule that was put into place last year for the cheerleaders is still in effect. The cheerleaders can choose if they want to cheer for football, basketball or both, considering potential conflicts.

The cheer team has been practicing and even went to a UCA camp at Indiana University for three days where they learned things like cheers, chants and stunts. The team has also earned some trophies by participating in competitions for both the Junior High and JV/Varsity squads.

The cheerleaders will be cheering at the first home game on August 19, and for everyone wondering, the annual cheer clinic will take place from September 6-9 this year.
