The new basketball season brings a new experience for the Independence varsity cheer team.

This year, the biggest difference involving the cheer team is that basketball and football cheer team are combined as one. Every year prior to this decision, football and basketball cheer teams have been separate, meaning different girls for each season. This is new change means that the cheerleaders have a long year ahead of them, and a lot of dedication is needed.

The football season did not end as planned, however, the basketball season can bring a new wave of positivity.

The cheerleaders are excited to start the 2017 basketball season. Kelsey Compton, senior at Independence High School, states “I am excited for this season, the cheerleaders can actually watch the game and be close on the court. I am also really happy that the team is combined this year. The season is long and the girls are ready for it. We get to experience two sports which is an awesome opportunity.” This basketball season will bring many cheers to the crowd.

This new style is challening and could be confusing for the girls because they are cheering for a completly different sport, but they are moving forward full force. Maggie McGaw, sophomore, says ¨the transition was a test for some of the girls, because they have never experienced cheering for both sports. Regardless, everyone is being positive.¨

The student section can expect another great season of sports, there is a lot of good to come. Everyone stay spirited and support the Independence Basketball season.
