For as long as anyone can remember, Mini Cheer has been hosted by the cheerleaders in both the fall and winter sports season. Young girls at the elementary level will learn cheers, dances, and what it takes to be a cheerleader.”Mini Cheer is going really well this year. I really enjoy knowing that we are affecting these young girl’s lives positively and that they are also habing fun as well,” said Junior cheerleader Abigail Butzbach.
This winter Mini Cheer will be held tonight during the girl’s basketball game against Spring Hill. “I am very excited to see the girls perform because they have worked really hard and I know they are going to do amazing,” said Butzbach. The LHS cheerleaders will be on the court with the younger girls, leading them the whole way. “Seeing that we changed up the way we teach the cheers and dances, the girls seemed to pick up everything really well, so I wouldn’t be surprised if tonight goes very smooth,” said Junior Feliciana Otano. The cheerleaders have shown that they know how to lead and are able to influence young girls to follow their dreams.
