Mater Dei High School

Cheerleaders, behind the scenes

There’s a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes every Friday night in your school’s athletic stadium. The smiling faces and cheery chants that ping-pong against both sides of the bleachers takes planning, skill and organization. Cheerleading is a sport and a performing art, but even more than that, it has something special behind it.

Underneath the singsongy voices is a lot of hard work and perseverance, but at the end of the work week, Mater Dei’s Varsity Cheer Team comes together as a family and finds fun on the field.
