Last weekend, the LO cheer team had a successful run at state. Lead by Head Coach Jerrie Sheik, the Lakers took third place at the OSAA State Cheerleading Championships.
In addition to placing third, the Lakers also received the Kim Hunter Award, which is given to the team that best demonstrates a positive attitude. For winning the Kim Hunter Award, the Lakers received a cash prize to help pay for uniforms and other expenses.
Cheer team squad member Sophie Bauer reminisced about the practice before state: “We turned on the music like we always do before we stretch and everyone just started dancing and singing. I think we scared some of the people walking through the cafeteria but it was definitely one of my favorite moments I spent with the team.”
