IHS cheerleading officially started on August 15, 2022. The cheerleaders cheer at IHS football games during the fall sports season. Captains this year are seniors Nadia Goodyear, Charlotte Camp, and Audrea Barbara.
In order for the team to be effective, everyone has to contribute. Goodyear comments on the potential of the team saying, “The capability of this team is substantial. Everything in cheer is about trying new things and working hard to perfect those things. When we put our minds to something new and work together to achieve it, there is nothing that we can’t accomplish.”
Cheerleading is a unique sport. They cheer on and support other sports teams while they also have their own supporters that come to games to cheer them on.
Morgan Adamson states, “What sets our team apart from other teams is the way we effectively communicate with each other, encourage ourselves and our teammates to do their best and try new things, and we all love what we do and want to get better every day. The dynamic of our team is very open as in we all talk to each other respectfully and keep everyone’s ideas and opinions open to consideration, which, I think, not only makes the team healthy and strong, but an enjoyable place to be. Everyone is important on this team, and I think captains, coaches, and all teammates encourage that.”
