Cheers Fill MU Campus
Many of the cheerleaders are new to the sport, and coaches say this is a good introduction to cheerleading.
"Sometimes cheerleaders get a bad reputation for being self centered and egotistical, but this has been a great experience," Jefferson Junior High schooler Jill Villasana said. "The squads are helping each other out and they've made some good friends. I hope we get to play these girls in games across the state cause it'll be great to see them again and see how they've improved, too."
Many of the girls probably don't have voices right now -- they cheered almost 12 hours each day. The Cheerleading Association held camps all across the nation this week.
