The Basketball Cheer Team is underway as they cheer for the sixth time this season.

“After being on the cheer team for my first year, I knew I was ready for the next,” Tyler Geter (11) said. “Basketball cheer is not only for fun, but it’s a sport.”

They don’t compete in real state competitions, but they do compete in ‘battle style’.

“Battle Style is when our cheer team and the other cheer teams do our/their version of the cheer,” Sharday Cagle (12) said.“ Basically, a ‘who does it better’.”

Not only do they battle cheer, but they cheer on the basketball team as they play. As a team, they all love to cheer for the basketball players when they do good and when they do bad. Most people says that cheer is not a sport, but it truly is.

“We practice everyday like a football team. We run everyday like a track team. We are athletes,” Raven Brown (12) said.
