The Stow-Munroe Falls High School competition cheer team is wrapping up their season Sunday, February 18 at Green High School.
On Sunday, the team will be competing in the Green Cheer Competition for the second year. They will be competing against three other teams: Minerva High School, Jackson High School and Lake High School.
“We went to this one and Chardon last year, and this year we’re just more interested in the schools that are competing at Green. We think it’s higher competition,” junior Michaela Light said.
The team has competed in three other competitions this year and have improved at each one.
Their season started in November at the Suburban League Cheer Competition at Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School, where the girls placed fourth out of seven teams.
At Hoover High School in December, they earned first place in the super varsity division and won second place in January at Jackson High School for the Jackson Cheer Competition.
The team’s routine was choreographed in August, and they have been working to improve it ever since. This usually includes staying after practice for a little longer to work on the routine.
“We’ve been practicing since our last competition. We usually have practice on Mondays after school for an extra hour after our tumbling practice, and we’ve been doing that in between competitions,” Light said.
Seeing as it is the last competition of the season, the girls want to make it a memorable one and end the season on a high note.
“We’ve been working since August, and this is our last one, so hopefully it’s good,” Light said.
The high school’s cheer competition team is looking forward to their last competition and hope to improve even more next year.
