Young squad working on building halftime routines

Whitehall’s cheerleading squad has experienced an influx of youth.

What was an experienced team last winter has become a very young team this year squad with only two members who cheered a season ago.

“Everything is new this year,” said Rachel Waters, who returns to the helm of the program with fellow head coach Lindsey Brown. “The JV team is completely new; they’re all freshmen. And last year’s JV team is now the varsity team, so it’s a bit of a rebuilding year.”

Madisen Coso and Payton Bessette are the team’s only seniors and are joined by juniors Mackenzie Fiorini and Madison Winters. Everyone else is a sophomore.

That lack of experience will affect the squad’s halftime performances during all home basketball games.

“The routines will be a little more simple at the beginning of the season. And we’ll build on it as the season goes along,” Water said.

Waters and Brown are hopeful that as the season progresses, the team can implement new elements into their routines. The team hopes to enter a few competitions this winter.

“It’s a very good group of girls. They work hard and very eager” said Waters. “We’re trying to promote a positive image of cheering.”
