On Feb. 19 the competition cheerleading team concluded their season by taking home the state runner-up trophy in the Class A traditional category after competing in Grand Island, Neb. They scored an 86.5 with only a quarter point deduction throughout the entire routine. This accomplishment demonstrated the team’s dedication and hard work put in throughout the season.
“The season overall went really well. All the seniors got really close the underclassmen never really had the chance to get those bonding experiences, so we had to take it upon ourselves to carry on the traditions,” senior co-captain Carley Gregg said.
The team’s state performance can be rewatched on the Marian Cheer Team Instagram account @marian_cheer_team on the IGTV feed.
The cheer team cheers at Mount Michael football games and Marian volleyball and basketball games on the sidelines. They keep their spirits high through wins and losses and represent Marian High School in blue, silver and white. The Marian cheer team has kept school spirit lifted throughout this past year, despite the difficulties.
