The 2018 Fall Cheer Team had a very successful car wash fundraiser earlier in the season! The weather was perfect for a Car Wash and the Cheerleaders had fun washing the many cars that came to support the program. The cheerleaders were also able to attend the Blue and Gold Football Scrimmage BBQ. A big thank you to the football program for providing the cheer athletes with delicious hamburgers, hot dogs, and refreshments.
