Cheerleading season is upon us once again.
McKayla started to worry when 4th & 5th grade squads were formed and she still hadn't heard about 2nd & 3rd. The computer lab teacher took pity on "her" girls and volunteered to be their coach b/c she couldn't let them miss out on cheerleading.
Getting a coach and squads together so late made us scramble. Tryouts were November 3rd and first game was just weeks away. Uniforms had to be rush ordered. Practice sessions crammed in. So on and so forth.
Luckily, there were quite a few 3rd graders from last year's squad who knew most of the cheers from last year and could help the 2nd graders one-on-one. (Coach N. calls these gal's her Seniors and that thrills McKayla.😃) So that helped in the cheering department.
Uniforms should have been simple even tho they were rushed but illness prevented them from being completed in time for our first game. Skirts and briefs were done but the tops still needed finishing, which resulted in the girls needing to wear white t-shirts tonight.
Now, with all that said, let's move on to the pictures from tonight's game, shall we? 😊
1st Game was the girl's basketball team. And it was interesting to say the least. Being the first game of the season, the 1st game ever for 2nd graders and a few 3rd graders, it was certainly a learning process. Cheerleaders included.
It didn't take them long to get the hang of it tho and they looked like pros by the end.
Unfortunately, our girls basketball team lost 12-4 ☹ but again, I feel like the first game teaches them how to proceed and as long as the girls had fun, that's the bottom line.
The boys game was intense. One player from the other team was a beast! He had super speed and accuracy and was scoring one right after the other. We didn't stand a chance against him.
|She was adjusting her skirt and shirt, then saw me and posed lol|
Needless to say, we were creamed 25-2. Ouch! But the girl's still had a blast cheering for the school and that's what counts for them.
Next game is this Saturday PLUS the parade we're in, so it's gonna be a BUSY day lol
