Submitted by tiffanie.miley on

Springville High cheer and drill teams came on Friday, March 4th to our school and performed for the SJHS girls. They came to show the eighth and ninth-grade girls their dances and get the junior high girls excited to try out for cheerleading and drill team. They told the girls how to sign up and the requirements for it. Eighth-grade girls can’t sign up until next year.

“It is a good experience for the young women in the school to see what the drill team and cheerleaders do at the high school,” said Mr. Knudsen, assistant principal at SJHS.  Bailey Penrose, ninth-grade student, said, “The assembly was interesting. I liked the different dances and techniques.” The cheerleaders perform during the high school sports games. The drill team performs during half-time along with color guard.

Faith Atkinson, an eighth-grader, said, “I really liked the drill team’s dance, it was cool!” The drill team performed a 5 minute dance.  Britney Melgoza, also and eighth-grader, said “My favorite part was the cheerleaders, they’re studs!” Bailey Davis agreed with Brittney.

According to the registration form, the requirements are; 3.0 third term GPA and maintain a 3.0 GPA each term after that.
