Last Years Competition Routine (Kimberly Inglis)

The end of the football season marks the end of the MSW Co-op for football and the cheer team. The Morgan Cheer team is currently transitioning into the winter season. Not only is there a difference in new captains, but their cheers too. During the fall season, Morgan Cheer was part of the Co-Op with MSW. This season there are only Morgan girls on the team. They went from having three different captains, one for each town, to three captains for Morgan that have a specific role.  This season’s captains are junior Destiny Rehberg (events), senior Sophia Caprio (practice), and senior Maria Eduarda Do Nascimento (game day). All three girls are captains for the team but have specialized roles. 

Events Captain Destiny Rehberg ~ plans and runs events with the coach for the cheer team, but also manages social media

Maria Eduarda Do Nascimento Game Day Captain ~ calls the cheers at the games and starts interactive cheers with the DogPound.

Sophia Caprio Practice Captain ~ communicates with the coach to help plan practice and leads the practice with cheers and traditional stretching.

The Cheerleaders are required to cheer at the same number of boy’s games as they do at girl’s games. The cheer lines for the games are based on attendance, performance, and focus during practice. It is not only important to maintain attendance for basketball season and games, but if you are part of the competition team, attendance is mandatory. Comp practice is a very important part because of choreography and counts.  But also making sure that everyone is there so places don’t need to be filled. 

Competition

Winter season consists of cheering for both girl’s and boy’s basketball but also competition. Competition is optional for the winter season, but in order to do competition, cheer members must do winter season cheer. Competition practices are multiple times a week and sometimes weekends on top of regular practice, with typically two games a week. This season there are three competitions that the cheerleaders will attend, and they fall on Saturdays. Comp can be a lot on top of school and basketball cheer.

Cheers

During the Co-Op with MSW, the cheer team was asked not to use Morgan in their cheers, so that the cheers were inclusive to all three towns. The team switched cheers that said ¨Morgan¨ to ¨Huskies¨, and even developed new cheers throughout the season. 

The fan-favorite Morgan Rumble is back for the winter season. During the Co-Op with MSW, it was switched to the Husky Rumble, but now that the teams are back to just Morgan students,  the girls can use Morgan in their cheers.

Fundraiser

The Morgan Cheer team is currently holding a fundraiser with FunPasta from now until January 1st. Each purchase earns 35-40% profit for the Cheer Team and helps support their fundraiser. The money goes to the cheer team to help fund supplies, cheer bows, and tons more.
