An Extra Pep in the Wildcat Step

Bailey Warren, 9th Grade Reporter

The 2018-2019 Cheerleading Team is off to a great start. This years’ team consists of nine girls ranging from 7th-12th grade. After many years without, this will be the first year that Houlka has had Basketball Cheerleaders back on the sidelines. The team is beyond excited! The Cheer sponsor is the School Nurse, Mrs. Chandra Warren. She has expressed her excitement to be the cheer sponsor this year and stated that she is proud of her team. Mrs. Chandra stated, “We have a great group of girls representing Houlka Attendance Center this year. They have been working hard to learn all of their routines and working their fundraisers.”

Iyania Taylor, Captain of the Cheer Team, stated, “I am really excited to lead these girls in Cheer.” Mrs. Chandra informed me that the Captain, Iyania, and the Co-Captain, Aylissa Moore, have been great leaders for their team.

The Houlka Cheerleaders are really excited to bring more school spirit to the basketball games. Even though the fans are as unwavering as ever, we are proud to be one more thing to give the fans something to cheer about.
