Without cheerleaders at Monroe County Middle School, there would be no school spirit. Cheerleading pumps up the school. We are a part of the school pep rallies. We cheer and yell to increase the school’s spirit!! What if the football team had no one to pump them up? The team may not play great. They could lose every game. Cheerleaders encourage the football team, therefore the team is always ready to play their best! This is why the Monroe County Middle School football team has cheerleaders.

The cheerleading team has competitions every weekend in October. We practice on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. We work on our cheers for the Wednesday games, and we practice our routine for the competition at every practice.

It is not as easy as you think. Imagine having to throw girls that weigh 100 pounds or more into the air over and over again. We also have to be able to keep them in the air without dropping and hurting them. Cheerleading pumps up the school’s’ spirit. We make it more fun for everyone!!
