CHEERLEADERS At every football and basketball game throughout the year these selected girls could be seen leading rousing cheers to help the morale of the team in every way possible. The cheers at the games weren't the whole extent of their job though. They worked many hours practicing and working on pep meetings, trying to create the special effects they needed to gain interest and spirit among the students. These peppy twelve fans certainly deserve a lot of praise for their consistent loyalty and work. JUNIOR VARSITY: S. Fosdick, K. Claymon, C. Kauth, J. Porter, B. Miller, K.
