Honored with Bid to Walt Disney World’s National Event
By: Misty Green
On Saturday, November 6, 2010, the Macon County High School Cheerleading Squad traveled to Warren County High School in McMinnville, TN and returned with two prestigious trophies.
The Cheer Squad earned 1st place in the Fight Song Division, for their performance of Rocky Top. The team also won 2nd place in the Varsity Competition.
These high rankings have earned the MCHS Squad a bid to the National Competition to be held on February 12-14 at the Walt Disney World resort in Florida.
The MCHS team will now hold several fundraisers to help get them to the National cheerleading competition.
The fundraisers they are planning will include a Baby Sitting Night on Black Friday, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., where children will participate in a evening of fun filled with movies, crafts, games, and simple finger foods. The squad also plans to hold a Beauty Pageant on December 11, 2010, a Roadblock, and hamburger/bake sale in the near future. If you would like to make donations to the Cheer Squad, please contact Jada Law at 666-4320.
The Macon County High School Cheerleaders now plan to prepare for their next competition on November 20, 2010 in the Tennessee State Cheer Build Division. Good luck girls and congrats on your National Bid invitation!
