The cheer squad hosted a Junior Jaguar Clinic on Friday, Sept.16 from 4 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. in the commons and gym of Monticello Trails Middle School. Girls from pre K- 8th grade were at the clinic to learn cheers, chants, and a dance. That night, the girls were able to cheer at the varsity game against Tonganoxie High School during the first and second quarters. Overall, there were around 62 girls at the clinic.
Cheer coach Mallory Friday had the clinic for the purpose of getting the community involved.
“It’s a great fundraiser to do. It’s also a great way to get the community to be pumped for MVHS cheer. Also, past coaches did it too,” Friday said.
The girls at the clinic were excited to be there and participated in the activities that the cheerleaders arranged for them.
“It’s going really well, all the girls are participating and are excited, that was our goal,” senior cheerleader Heidi Mustapich said.
At the Junior Jaguar Clinic there were three stations for the three groups of girls to go to. There was the cheer and chant station, where they would break down all the cheers and chants for the girls. The next station was where they would teach the girls a dance to the song “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO. The last station was where the girls could relax and talk amongst themselves.
Freshman cheerleader Callee Linton was eager to cheer at Friday’s game.
“I’m excited for us JV girls cheering with varsity and the little girls on this Friday’s game,” Linton said.
Overall, the girls were able to cheer at Friday’s game with the varsity and JV cheerleaders.
