The cheer team hosted their sixth annual USD232 Cheer Showcase for parents and other members of the community at Mill Valley on Monday, Feb. 27. The goal of the performance was to show off what the team had accomplished during the season in their last performance of the year.

For sophomore cheerleader Allison Pham the event was a success

“The event ran smoothly and everyone seemed to have fun,” Pham said. “[We] cheered each other on … and motivated each other.”

Sophomore cheerleader Morgan Botts was happy to participate in the event again this year.

“The showcase is a tradition,” Botts said. “We have it … to show family and friends the routines we have performed at competitions.”

For Botts the team had to overcome a lot to get to this point

At the De Soto Showcase on Monday, Feb. 25, the cheer team gets ready to perform their routine. “I think that [the performance] was a success, but we can always work on making our routines cleaners,” Botts said.

“We worked well together despite all the injuries and sickness,” Botts said. “[Overall] it was was a success.”

Pham felt the performance was very different from other competitions.

“It was more laid back,” Pham said. “It was … [the] first time seeing other [De Soto] schools performance.”

Since the showcase was their last performance of the season, Botts was happy with how the season ended.

“The showcase was a great way to wrap up the cheer season,” Botts said. It shows what we have performed at competitions [all year].”

Next season Botts is hoping to keep improving and to keep getting good scores

“[Next season] we can make our performances cleaner,” Botts said. “I hope we continue to get superior ratings.”
