o did students get pumped up at football games? How did a crowd go from being lackluster to the greatest fans of any team in the game? What group was always at every football and basketball game? The answer was the same for all three: the Michigan Cheerleading squad. These men and women were the ambassadors of spirit and team pride. Without them, the fans would have sat quietly and the students would have had no one to look to for unbeatable spirit. The cheer team had three coaches that led them this year. As of 2006, Pam St. John had been head coach for 23 years. Tracie Richards had been the team ' s assistant head aoach for nine years, and assistant coach Greg Shaver, had been with the cheer team for three years. To be at the top of their game, the cheer team needed all three of these fine coaches. During tryouts the prospective members were tested on basic stunt performance in both individual and group cheers, such as males holding up females and back flips. Also tested were basic gymnastic skills. " People who did not show progression during clinics before tryouts were cut from the team during tryouts, " said Matt Radler, junior biomedical engineering major. After weeks of physical training and practice, the season began, and it held many wonderful memories for the team. Junior elementary education major Matthew Ceo said, " My best memory of the season was traveling to New York City for the NIT Tournament. It was my first time to the Big Apple, and the cheer team had a lot of free time to take in the sights. " While the year held many ups and downs for the University ' s major sports teams, the cheer team never lost its spirit. Sophomore chemical engineering major Patrice Longford leads the crowd in " Let ' s Go Blue. " Cheerleaders had to be able to project extremely loudly to be heard over the band. R.

" All female members of the cheer team were " flyers, " trained to stand in and tumble out of lifts. R. Peplinski photo byzach gasior The cheer team never wavered and always kept the fans on their feet. Without that team, the games would not have been what they were. Fans and players alike owed the cheer team a debt of gratitude for everything they did at each and every game. 1 20 cheerleading
