The Custer High School competitive cheer team continues to see improvement as the season moves into its midpoint. On Saturday the Wildcat cheerleaders hosted the Custer Invitational at the Armory and came in fourth in a field of five teams.
“We significantly improved our average performance score from the previous week’s performance,” said coach Sheri Deatherage.
The ’Cats received a score of 55 from one of the two judges at the meet (usually there are three) and got a score of 54.5 from the other judge. Deatherage said she was pleased with those scores and anticipates better scores and placings as the season progresses.
“We are looking forward to the coming weeks,” said the coach. “We have some tremendously talented athletes who will continue to improve as we move deeper into the season.”
The Wildcat cheerleaders will be kept busy with homecoming activities this week, including their active involvement with Friday’s pep rally, and are preparing for their next meet which is the Scooper Spirit Competition in Sturgis this Thursday evening, Oct. 6.
Deatherage said she’s excited to see how her athletes do there.
