Thursday night, March 20th, was the Winter Sports Banquet at McDowell High. All the sports teams had their own awards to give, and many coaches made speeches, but the cheerleading awards were by far the most in depth.
The coach, Vicki Presnell, made sure to verbally recognize each and every member of the squadron, listing achievements and special qualities each girl had. Some girls also received plaque awards, such as Tara Ollis, who received an MVP award and a Captain’s award. Graycn Hensley also received a Captain’s award, and several others received Titan Athletic Award plaques.
While the season is finally over for McDowell’s Cheerleaders, the break is only a small one, considering tryouts resume on April 23rd. Tryouts begin the 23rd and continue through the 25th. These tryouts are being held for both JV and Varsity, but the JV coach has yet to be decided.
Coach Vicki Presnell of Varsity was willing to coach both, but it was decided both teams would profit from their own separate instruction. Several applicants have applied for the job, but the final choice has yet to be made.
Many girls are returning, but there is always room for fresh talent. If anyone is interested in receiving more information, they should contact Coach Flea Blake, head of the athletic department, a fellow cheerleader, or Mrs. Vicki Presnell.
