|This was taken right before their performance.|
Of course, I was running late...and of course, there was lots of traffic...and of course my parking space was in the last row...and of course...it was a windy, bone chilling day in Bowling Green. But, I made it...half sprinted up the steps to the platform to get a good view so I could take some pictures. Being short sometimes has its advantages in squeezing through busy crowds...but there was no way I was going to be able to get a good spot. It was then someone called my name and said that the girls were competing next and we could sit in the section reserved for people rooting for their teams. (We would then move out of the seats and the next team's groupies would move in.)
|Getting ready to begin!|
I couldn't take a video with my SLR camera because my lens was too long and I had no time to change it...so this video is taken with my point and shoot. This performance is amazing!
|I wish I could have taken more|
pictures like this, because there
were three cheerleaders doing this.

So, how did they do? You are now looking at the 2014 Division III Mount State Champions! Way to go! This was not the first time they have accomplished this. They were also State Champs in 2008. 2009, 2012, and now 2014! That's a lot of talent in this small school district. Congratulations to the girls, head coach, Missy Roberts Jester and assistant coach, Jenny Widener Hockenbery (neither coach cheered in high school.)
