Fluco competition cheer squadThe Flying Fluco competition cheer squad has been hard at work this season. First year Coach Julia Hogue reports that this year’s squad which consists of sixteen athletes, has been working on its routines six days a week. She notes that this “is a strong group of girls.” The team practices Monday through Friday after school, or Monday through Thursday with a performance at the football game on Friday. In addition, the team practices for three or four hours on Saturday. It takes discipline, co-ordination and training to create a successful squad. This team is clearly putting in the necessary time.
