A new squad of cheerleaders has taken to the courts for the 2014-2015 Gering High School activities season. Led by first-year coach Lesly Tice and assistant Mary Ann Saucedo, the new group will be debuting for Bulldog fans new dance routines, cheers and spirit-building events throughout G-Town. Tice said all the members of this year’s squad have a solid background in either dance or cheer.

“Every routines except our traditional Christmas dance will be different and new,” Tice said. “We will be doing more theme dances this year and this will be the first time in a long time that we will compete in at the state cheerleading contest in February in Grand Island.”

Last Saturday the cheer squad, comprised of 12 young ladies in the 9th through 12 grade, hosted a mini-cheer clinic for girls age pre-school through 5th grade. Clinic participants will be performing a special routine during half-time of this Friday’s homecoming football match-up against Adams Central at Gering’s Memorial Stadium.

Community involvement will also be an added focus for the GHS spirit squad. The group just finished conducting a pig raffle and their mini cheer clinic helped raise money for the program. Tice said other fundraising and community events are being planned.

“We’re going to be doing a bunch of stuff in the community in the coming weeks,” said Tice. “We’ll be at the Geil Family Fitness Night and also cheering next weekend at the Monument Marathon.”

Tice said squad members have received a lot of positive feedback and support from the community and said they appreciate the community sponsors who have been helpful in advancing the program and encouraging spirit throughout Gering Schools.
