Calling all girls with school spirit.

Cheer tryouts will be held May 4-8.

“I’m hoping for a good turnout during tryouts,” said Ms. Corley, cheerleading coach. ” I have a good senior group that will be able to teach material and allow me to observe rather than teach.”

Ms. Corely said she enjoys being a coach because she likes working with students outside of the classroom, watching them achieving their goals, and watching the girls bring energy to the football and basketball fields.

She is hoping this year her energies won’t be divided.

“Last year it was extra stressful trying to balance two squads, JV and Varsity,” she says. “We haven’t been assigned our posts yet, but I will more than likely not be doing both again.”

Students who plan to cheer will have to get a physical. They are being made available at the school on May 12 and cost $20.

“I encourage all athletes to (get physicals at the school)  because they are cheaper.” Corely said.

Corley said she is looking forward to this year.

“I think the girls will be nervous, excited, ready to learn the cheers,” she said. “I think most of the girls on JV and Varsity will try out again.”
