The Raider varsity cheer-leading squad placed 5th in the UIL State Spirit Competition on Thursday January 12 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

This is the second year that the UIL State Spirit Competition has been running. The cheerleaders are judged in three different categories: band dance, fight song, and cheer. This competition is a great way to show off the skill and hard work that is put into cheer-leading.

“The most rewarding part of competing in these competitions is working so incredibly hard and seeing the progress you’ve made from start to finish. Also it is rewarding to be able to perform and show off the hours of dedication and hard work that went into the routines,” junior India Howay said.

The Raider squad competed against 61 other teams at the UIL State Spirit Competition and placed ninth in the prelims and advanced to the finals.

“Cheer-leading has given me the opportunity to cheer on every team and provide spirit to the school. It allows us to get everyone involved and get everyone excited about school activities,” sophomore Haley Settle said.

After competing in the finals, our Raider cheerleaders moved up four spots and achieved fifth place among all competing 3A teams.

“Cheer-leading is a lot of hours and hard work that no one recognizes and a lot of behind the scenes hours that go unnoticed. Getting to finally perform and show off our hard work is a great feeling,” Settle said.
