The Arlington High School Basketball Cheerleaders recently discovered something that the Freshman and Junior Varsity Football Teams needed: sideline cheerleaders. Typically the cheerleaders only participate at the Varsity Football Games on Friday Night, due to heavy practice and competition schedules. But a suggestion was made to Amy Johnson, sponsor of the AHS Basketball Cheerleaders, to have her Basketball Cheerleaders participate in the Freshman and JV Football game against Bartlett. And she saw a great opportunity to expose them to different styles of cheering.

“It gives them more practice and it will help them improve their routines. It will make the overall team better,” says Mrs. Johnson. The Cheerleaders spend most days after school practicing new routines and perfecting their craft. Some of the cheerleaders say that cheering gives them a outlet from their normal lives and they like having something to do after school than just going home.

While the AHS Basketball Cheerleaders were only able to make it to one game this past season, many hope they continue the tradition.
