children at Eastside Friday morning.
The cheerleaders may begin their day greeting the younger children, but they are busy young ladies all week. They practice often, paint bootprints, decorate ball player locker doors, make signs for spirit boosters, and plan and conduct pep assemblies for all home games. They hand out snacks to the ball players on game days.

When the lights come on at Jim Hurley, Jr. Stadium, the Lumberjack cheerleaders spring into action revving up the crowd of fans to "come to the spirit line." They build pyramids and perform stunts that require great skill. They lead the fans in cheering on the team and perform routines at halftime. When the game is done, the cheerleaders continue their role as ambassadors for the school as they, like the ball players, greet the opposing team on the field in good sportsmanship.
The squad is under the sponsorship of Joanna Young.
|Everyone stands in amazement at the skill of this squad.|
|Alexis Dunaway really flips for her team!|
