For most freshmen, just being a freshman student is daunting in itself, but Hannah Souder and Ella King have taken on the challenge of balancing school and being on the basketball cheerleading squad. Souder has already gotten a taste of what high school cheerleading is all about because she was a football cheerleader, but for King, this is her first high school cheerleading experience.

“I was a little nervous since it was my first time cheering for a high school game, but I was excited!” King said.

“It’s fun and I’m happy but there’s too many dances,” Souder said.

As the basketball season starts, these two freshmen cheerleaders are as excited as ever!
