Cheer is More Than a Sport, It’s An Attitude

The cheer team has grown a lot over the years at GHS with the help of head coach Rosemary Wiggins. Cheer is a very competitive sport especially when there are over 70 girls trying out and only 46 spots available. 

Tryouts were from April 11 through April 13. Tryouts were a difficult time not only for the newcomers but also for the current cheerleaders as there was more competition. 

Being a head coach has some great rewards, like seeing others come together to get to know each other and form new friendships. Not only does it come with rewards but it also comes with some big achievements as well. 

Rosemary Wiggins believes that the Grandview cheer team is by far the best team she has coached, before she even came here they had no matching uniforms, bows, or bags. In the past 5 years, she has been able to grow the program and get them everything they need to succeed. 

These Grandview cheerleaders are good at what they do they are determined, hard-working, and team-oriented. 

“Outside of being a cheer coach I try to be a mom figure, and a safe space for them,” Rosemary Wiggins stated. 

The best part of watching this team perform is seeing their faces light up when they know they’ve done a good job and are role models to others.
