    Weatherford girls compete in Pony Club Championship

    The WHS Cheerleaders have earned the chance to be in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City this fall. The girls performed a routine at the All-Star competition and all of the seniors and one junior were selected to the All-Star all U.S. team. They will be leaving the Saturday before Thanksgiving

    to begin practicing for the parade. 1,000 performers were selected to perform in the parade with 500 cheerleaders and 500 dancers going. The Spirit of America competition

    was spread across the country. So, it is no easy feat getting selected, and the girls worked extremely hard to make it. Each day in NYC, they’ll have an early morning practice

    and a practice after dinner. Throughout the day they’ll have the opportunity to go with staff tour guides around the city. They’ll get to walk through the 9/11 Museum, see the

    Statue of Liberty, attend a couple Broadway plays, and watch the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular. The cheerleaders are raising money for the experience, with the goal of raising $10,000 to cover half of the costs.

    Donations can be made to local cheerleaders and through their PayPal: whscheer73096@gmail.com. Sponsorships for individuals and businesses are available for the team as well. Sponsorships will be printed on the back of the T-shirts that the girls will wear during their time in NYC. The Competition Cheer Team will begin competing this

    year in September, and they have their goals set high. We’d like to wish the girls good luck this year and to issue

    a special congratulations. We can’t wait to watch them perform in the parade!
