Fairhope Cheer celebrates past season

FAIRHOPE, Ala.- FHS Cheer hosted its annual cheer banquet and awards ceremony on March 5, at Celebration Church. This event honors each cheerleader and rewards them for their hard work every season. 

Cheerleading impacted many cheerleaders and has shown them how to lead a team and a community. 

“Fairhope Cheer has impacted me in many ways and it is super special to visit the schools on game days and see how much the little girls look up to us as cheerleaders,” said Brinly Bauguss, senior co-captain. “It’s very rewarding seeing how much of an impact we have on their future and how being a leader is so important.”

The cheer team cheered at multiple pep rallies, home and away games, hosted a cheer camp and continuously showed pride for the school.

“Some significant moments for me from this season were football games, especially the homecoming game and our first game of the season against Spanish Fort because those are always super competitive and fun,” said Ella Shedd, sophomore cheerleader. 

At every cheer competition, each team’s goal is to earn a final score of zero. This means that their performance had zero deductions and is known as “hitting.”

“This season was super rewarding, especially our competitions this year where we hit and finished fifth in the state and second in the region,” said Caroline Ledford, sophomore cheerleader. 

Each cheerleader played a significant role on the team which helps them to perform to the best ability and work together. 

“I loved state competition and how the team bonded so much and it’s been one of my favorite moments from each year,” said Ella Traylor, senior co-captain. 

The cheer team celebrated significant moments of the season and showed what leadership and dedication truly is.
