Recently, tryouts for Palm Harbor University High School’s cheerleading team took place. Some of the girls that tried out were selected to be members of the team to cheer for the fall football teams.

Each athlete started with a coach’s score, a score out of 40 points based on academics and participation. This score would prevent ties where necessary. Many girls earned around a 35.

March 5th to March 8th was for practicing. This means everyone learned a cheer, a chant, and a dance, and had to perfect it in those three days. March 9th was the actual day of tryouts. Varsity and Junior Varsity separately performed for the judges in groups of three in the auditorium.

On March 10th, the lists were posted on the cafeteria window and the wait was over.

Here are the varsity and junior varsity fall cheerleading team lists:

Varsity: Alyssa Taylor                Kayla Forant
