Congratulations to all involved. Cheerleading is a great sport and takes so much dedication and athleticism.

The young ladies that represent, and add to the spirit of our schools, should all be applauded.

Nicely done!

The cheerleaders out in the North Sacramento area cities of Citrus Heights, Orangevale, Fair Oaks and Carmichael are way better. Good for you, though.
