Cheer Squad 2008: Off to a Good Start

Judge Cheerleaders are the spirit leaders of the school. Every Friday they come out to the football games, cheer their hearts out and get the crowd pumped up.

"This year's group of young ladies are incredibly talented, hard working, and supportive…The Judge Squad is off to an excellent start and I look forward to watching the squad continue to grow during the year," says Natosha Washington, in her fourth year of Cheer coaching at Judge.

The weekend of Homecoming on the 26th and 27th is the Cheerleaders next event, but you can see the Cheerleaders at any home football game.

If you want to try out for next year's Cheerleading squad, tryouts are in the end of April. They will announce specific dates closer to the time of tryouts. In the meantime, Coach Washington recommends you stay in shape by doing P.E., Dance, and Yoga because they work on your strength, coordination, and flexibility. Coach Washington also would like girls to "focus on [their] academics!" She likes good students.

If you have any questions about Cheerleading, you can talk to Coach Washington, or Erin O'Brien and Kristie Brown, the Cheerleading Captains.
