the new cheerleading coach this year, is Vivian Barker,formerly coach for the Middle School. Yes it is like an alternate thing. and whats sad is "they" picked the ones coming from Middle School to be on varsity instead of being on JV like it should have been. I guess like always "they" make up the "rules" as they want to, not like they should be.

I kinda have a problem with 4 freshmen getting varsity.
I know those girls (and have watched them cheer). Katilyn Bailey? I find that hard to believe.
Katie Jones should have been on varsity before those girls.
get it right

It is common knowledge that it isn't how well you do on tryouts, it is if they want you on their sguad. The coaches are told by ssac rules it is better to pick your own sguad. Some coaches will even put checks on the girls names for the judges to score these girls higher. Don't tell me I don't know what I am talking about, because we have been there, I didn't approve of it then or now. In some instances when the tryout dance is taught, several of the cheerleaders would already know it. Which you can guess which ones. It was so obvious that the girls knew it, they wouldn't even try to play dumb. I am not talking about this year, I am talking about past years. If you have confidence in your kids and think they are so great, why do they need to know the dances before the other girls? I am not refering to any certain school, but they are in the Sandy River district.
well

You don't leave much doubt to which school. But I agree that there has been times when the coaches have let it be known to judges who they want. Also there have been judges who have asked coaches do they have preferences. This stuff goes on everywhere.

First of all if you have never tried out for Iaeger High Cheerleading squad then you have no idea what you are talking about. As a former cheerleader I can honestly say that NO ONE but the person teaching the dance knows the dance.Before everyone runs their mouth about who should be on the squad and who shouldn't, they need to come watch these girls practice and they will see the choice for varsity is obvious. They girls that got on varsity are very deserving and worked very hard to earn their postions. It doesn't matter if they are freshman or seniors if they made the squad it wouldn't be fair to take them off just because an upperclassmen didn't make the squad. I say congratulations to all the girls because everyone got something and everyone should be proud of that!! In conclusion, I want to give everybody a big CONGRATULATIONS from me!!!
I know a couple of girls

You know I believe it, because I heard it from some former cheerleaders themselves about learning the dance before tryouts several years ago. I can list names of the girls, but I don't want to drag them into this. It may be different when you were cheering. If you ask them now they wouldn't admit to it, but the girls that were involved knows the truth. Congratulations to the new cheerleaders I am sure they are great.

It was told up front that how you rank on the squad is based on your score. If you scored in the top 13 you make varsity. The next scores got Varsity/JV and then came JV. It does not matter how old you are or what grade you are in. What you get is what you deserve! I agree Katie is a good cheerleader and a very sweet girl, but nobody knows who performed perfect and who may have messed up that day. It does happen. I have seen all of those girls cheer and I knew they would at least give them a run for there money!
Good Luck to you all! I wish you a fantastic year!

Anyone who has ever tried out for cheerleader at Iaeger knows they do not go by scores, and anybody else who has ever tried out knows this also it looks like it is going to be a big mess this year at least with the old sponsor she was pretty good to her girls, the new sponsor is a hateful spiteful b*tch who does not care whose feelings she hurts seen it to many times with my own eyes she has started early this year look what she did to Katie, karma has a way of coming back around and it is going to be a b*tch for her when it comes back to her.
