On October 2, varsity cheer tryouts were held in the cafeteria for anyone interested in being a part of the basketball squad.
Each participant was expected to meet a cut score of 70 on the rubric for their tryout to be eligible to be a member. Thirteen girls were chosen, including four girls who have never cheered before. The new members include: seniors Myranda Hickman, Josey Bledsoe and Jalyn Engleking and junior Margaret Naumoff. Returning members of the squad are seniors Lauren Rutherford, Lexi Stroud, Avrey Richards and Isabelle Goff; juniors Lili Seals, Libby Padgett, Faith Wilder and Payton Ashley and freshman Micayala Groves.
On Saturday, November 23, the squad will cheer at their first boys game against Clarksville at home.
