Cheerleaders Add Spirit Striving to provide pep and enthusiasm throughout the school, fifteen spirited cheerleaders screamed their way through football games, basketball games, wrestling and swimming meets. They decorated the halls with red and gold signs, performed skits during pep assemblies, and carried their unbounded spirit in their smiles and yells. This year the sophomore cheerleaders were chosen by three cheerleading judges. They created new cheers and brought new spirit to Rocky. The swimmers and wrestlers depended on the junior cheer¬ leaders to boost them to a victorious season. This year ' s varsity squad was awarded six superior ribbons and the “spirit stick " at Illinois State University, where they attended clinic this summer. They were chosen as one of the top five out of the 120 groups that attended. They performed on the mini tramp at football games, and “can-canned " at basketball games. Their support and organized perfection brought pride to all of Rocky. Our fifteen cheerleaders were coaches of spirit and pep. Their efforts were not wasted, for they succeeded in providing enthusiasm, and led the year of sports to a rewarding end.
