The past two weeks have been good ones for the CGHS coed cheer team. On Saturday, Jan. 19 the team of four boys and 13 girls placed second at the Springfield Invitational. In their first ever coed competition.

“It was our first competition,” said head coach Kristi Reigard. “We worked out a lot of nerves, and we placed higher than we expected, which was good. It was a real confidence boost for them and a learning experience for a really young team.”

Half of the Lions’ coed team are in their first year of cheerleading. Their second place came against four other schools, all of them in a higher classification than 4A.
