Fall Sports Season Preview: Cheerleading

Posted August 24, 2016

Show your Rebel Pride this fall! Join the cheerleaders as they bring the excitement of the game to the bleachers!

By Brayden Leather

The fall sports season is one of the best times of the school year for many reasons. One of those reasons include the excitement of the games under the Friday Night Lights and the pep rallies that take place during the fall. South High’s cheer team is there every step of the way to help fire up the great fans and student section we have during football games. Bailey Knight, a returning senior, says the team will be trying to make it back to the state competition this winter, something that many of the cheerleaders on the team loved being a part of last year. Plenty of things to get excited about this year!

For the most part, the team looks just about the same minus a few graduated seniors. Returning to the sideline this year representing the senior class is multi-sport athletes Sidney Kelly and Sara Peer, both interview subjects of mine from last school year, Bailey Knight, Grace Henrich, and Zoie Alexander. A few returning representatives from the junior class includes Krishae Butler, Belinda McCray, and Zaria Cross among others. Included is a full JV and varsity roster along with the JV and varsity football schedules as these are the same schedules the cheerleaders follow.
