Cheer takes on state competition

The cheer squad has set off for Topeka where they will be competing in KSHSAA’s first annual Game Day competition.

They have been working tirelessly to get ready for the competition, which will take place tomorrow. The band has even helped out by recording one of the dance numbers for them.

“I’m looking forward to spending time out of town with my friends,” junior Abby Ailstock said. “I want to show off our capabilities to all the people that are going to be there and I’m looking forward to just the whole experience.”

The ladies are set to take the floor at 8:45 a.m., 10 a.m., and 11:45 a.m., all at the Topeka Expocentre.

They are performing a routine to the song, “Land of a Thousand Dances” recorded by the band, a crowd involvement cheer and a routine to the school song, “Kick Off.”

If the girls make it to finals they will have to add in an offensive or defensive cheer, depending on what the judges ask for. Finalists will be announced at noon that day and the final competition will begin at 6 p.m.
