What’s more nerve-racking and competitive than trying out for a High School Cheerleading team? Being a Freshman and trying out to make the Varsity Cheerleading team.
On March 3, Reedy held tryouts for Freshman, Junior Varsity, and Varsity cheerleading teams.

“I’m really hoping that I’ll make Varsity,” freshman Madison Carter said. “There’s a lot of competition but I still have high hopes.”
Madison has a slight disadvantage because she hasn’t received the experience of high school cheerleading yet. She is hoping to make the Varsity team.

“I am confident in my skills and the work that I have put in,” she said. “I’ve been going to private lessons every week. I really hope that the work pays off because Varsity is what I want.”
Being a cheerleader makes you one of the faces of Reedy, which is why they work hard both inside and outside of practice to make sure they each represent well. Not only do they work hard at their skills but they also must demonstrate all of Reedy;s core values.

“My favorite part about cheerleading is getting to know a lot of girls,” freshman Molly Palaschak said. “I’ve met a lot of new friends from cheer.”
Because cheerleaders are a significant part of every school, it draws those who are passionate about showing their school pride to join.

“I did cheer because I just really wanted to get involved with the school,” freshman Grace Anderson said. “But cheering for the school has turned into so much more for me. I love cheerleading with a passion; stunting, jumping, tumbling, all of it. And showing my dedication to the school and getting to cheer on my fellow classmates on makes it even more fun.”

All of the girls have a passion for cheer and for their school that will hopefully lead them to success.

“It’s not always easy to be a cheerleader, but it’s definitely always worth it,” Grace said. “I definitely hope to be a part of this organization again next year.”
