If, and when, Mrs. Houck does retire; we need to have a nice celebration for her and for her years of hard work. I am not from the immediate East area, but her reputation is statewide. I hope things work out for the East girls. Coach Houck is one of the most repected among her peers too.

I have been reading alot of comments on this page concerning East Cheerleading. I myself used to work with the Mullens cheerleaders and it was alot of dedication and alot of hard work. There has to be a drive n the kids to be the best they can be. IT cant be one one person or coach to do this. Karen Houck is a wonderful person and she has taught me alot. I have worked with alot of cheerleaders in Nc and have been very successful due to what she had taught me in the past years. I know alot of people dont think of cheerleading as a sport but thats only the people who havent had the privledge of being associated with it. I have been involved in High School cheerleading and alot of All star cheerleading.....such as Lake Norman High School and Cheer Extreme Allstars.....THEY ARE FREAKING AWESOME... U CAN YOUTUBE THEM. All of the girls i helped in years past in the late 80's and early 90's i must take my hat off to u cuz u girls were awesome. but to all that is posting these comments ....cheerleading isnt for everyone. Maybe Karen Houck isnt "into it" like she used to be i dont really know. all i know is she is a wonderful person and an awesome coach. She has definitely left her trademark and definitly knows her business. I still work with cheerleaders and I now teach gymnastics for a world class gymnast. Im very thankful to all Karen has taught me and exposed me to due to the sport. Thank You !!! David McKinney

Well, after a lot of deep thought, I wqill leave a comment or two....Karen expects 110% effort and edication.....a lot of girls just want to cheer for fun and don't consider it life or death......these two things don't mix well, do they?
So, when she has really dedicated girls, they do well.....when she has kids that like to cheer, but don't really think it is life or death, she doesn't do so well......nobody is at fault....after all....it is cheerleading, not a crowd stopping, sale out event......

The question is where is the problem? Is it the coaching or with the commitment of the cheerleaders? I think and this is my opinion you need to figure out where the problem is before you re-act.

"like mother, like daughter"...ok whatever that means?....Mrs. Houck is a great coach, I agree with what David said...(glad to hear your doing so well, knew you would go far)....but cheerleading is soooo diffrent now even than what it was in the 90's....you have to be dedicated, you have to want it!!!...

It seems that now cheerleading is as much a sport as basket ball or football.They should be as dedicated as the ball teams and practice just as hard.Do they think that all they have to do is get on the floor and show thier little buts of?

Thank u ex-MHS cheerleader. did u cheer when i helped? i havent talked to very many of the girls in a very long time. but one thing i will say when a coach or ( people in general) make a childs weight an issue..........especially if the child is sensitive to his/her weight. it can lead the individual down the path to eating disorders. thats when it becomes sad and definily not worth it. but im in full support of all athletics and discipline. those factors structure kids to a very healthy life. and always remember if u dont love the sport ur in or not having fun.....there are always other things to do. But i have always remembered and lived by this rule. the trophies are nice, the feeling of being #1 is a great feeling. but at the end of the day its all about the kids!!!

Cheerleading is a great activity, BUT A REAL SPORT??????
How many actual minutes are the cheerleaders performing during a basketball game or football game????(and plz leave out the sideline cheers, as they are obviously not sport activity).
How long is the ONE ROUTINE at the competition for high school cheerteams???? 3 or 4 minutes, or so.
Yea, cheering can be a lot of practice and hard work, but they do not compete against other squads at basketball games, football games, or any other time, except for THE COMPETITION...so, is it really a sport....or simply entertainment for the other sports?
As for all the work in practice, I doubt football practice, basketball practice, cross country practice, track practice would be very successful with the regimine cheerleaders put forth in their typical practices.
I don't ever remember fans boycotting a game because the cheerleaders were not going to perform.......

i agree, cheering has become nothing but drama, but the drama is at school as well. so this is not the coaches fault, its a bunch of whinny little girls who can't get along, and work together. if all the other sports can work and i do mean work then why can't a bunch of self centered little girls work for and hour or so and
learn a couple of cheers and do them and look like cheerleaders. when is the last time our cheerleaders actually led the crowd in cheeers, we'er lucky if you can hear them, or if they start a cheer that the crowd can follow, there job is supposed to be leading the fans in cheers to support the teams, most of the time they spend crossed armed just standing, if they want respect then get to work and show us something. prove just how much time and work you put into the sport. get the fans going, not the other way around, if you want to be window models, then change you profession, "cheerleaders" should be cheering. lets go east.

Let me say this... having played football (college & high school), basketball and cheered (college basketball), cheerleading practice was just as difficult as other "sports". Not only the physical part of it, but the mental as well. With football or basketball, you have plays you just have to perform and react, while cheering is a series of difficult moves along with physical stunts. Is it a sport? Is diving? Is gymnastics? Your only degree of keeping a score is by other people judging. I hate that part about it. What you see cheerleaders perform at games is only window dressing for the school and fans. Most people don't really care and they don't care that much either. Competitions against other squads and the work and dedication it takes to do what they do is very real. So for only a 5 minute routine you see is only 5 minutes to you... but its hundreds of hours to them. I used to think the same things until I did it.
