Over the Thanksgiving break, the MHS Cheer team placed second in their category at the UCA regional competition in Lewisville, Texas.

The Super Game Day Varsity category includes a three minute performance featuring a game day cheer/chant section, a fight song section, and a band dance section. UCA Game Day is designed for teams to show off what they do on a typical Friday night. The teams are judged on spirit, technique and ability. MHS Cheer began preparing for the competition at the beginning of school by practicing every day.

“We watched lots of videos of past competitions and even brought in an outside consultant for tips and critiquing,” MHS Cheer Coach Amy Wright said.  

By placing second in their category, the team earned a bid to nationals in February 2018. But first, the team will take on UIL in January. The UIL competition is similar to the UCA Game Day. Teams perform their band dance, chant/cheer, and the fight song separately in prelims, and then combine them all together for the finals.

“I feel like the team has come a long way since the beginning of the year,” Coach Wright said. “They have really come together to work as a team. The next goal for us will be to place 1st at our UIL competition in January. I am in high hopes that we will be able to compete at Nationals in Florida.”
