Normally, Parish cheerleaders are the ones cheering on other teams, but last weekend they earned some applause of their own. On Sunday, October 5 in Waco, Texas the Parish Cheerleading Team competed in the TAPPS Cheer Championships. Panther cheerleaders competed against a total of 30 teams at the Waco Convention Center. Parish was awarded fifth place! Kamryn Leeper, class of '16, and Bridget Frank, class of '16, were named to the All-State Team.
"We were all really excited because last year we got 13th out of 17, and this year we got 5th out of 30!" exclaimed team member Abbey Perry, class of '18.
You can see the cheerleaders perform Friday nights at Panther Football games.
Congratulations to the cheerleading team:
