The IHS Cheerleading Squad has grown exponentially over the past five years. It has grown from approximately 4 cheerleaders to 14, and it has grown from a very small program to a large competition-worthy squad. To put it plainly, they are awesome! Every year, they hold three separate mini-cheer camps for local youth. One is during the annual Irrigon Watermelon Festival, one during Football season, and the last during Basketball season.
Last Friday night during IHS’s last home-games of the season against Heppner, all the kids who participated in the camp that week got to perform a dance and stunt during halftime of the Boys Varsity game. Harley and Reagan participated, and they had a blast!
And the girls doing their stunts:
Harley loves cheerleading so much that next year in Junior High, she wants to do it instead of volleyball and basketball. This non-cheerleading mother is having a hard time with that, but it’s what she loves to do, so I’m sure she’ll do it!
