GRAVETTE The Gravette Junior High Cheer Squad kicked off their 2009-10 season with a trip to cheer camp at the University of Arkansas conducted by Universal Cheerleaders Association.
Squads were required to arrive with a prepared "Home Pom" routine which they performed before judges, parents and other squads. All squads spent four days learning new cheers, builds and dance routines upon which they were judged. Four high school and four junior high squads were in attendance.
The Gravette squad was awarded the Superior Squad trophy and second place for their "Home Pom" routine. In addition the girls received many ribbons for their attitude and performance.
