When cheerleaders are true leaders

The CLAA conference's basketball tournament was held in Carroll County, Missouri, recently. Hardin-Central High School played Northwestern High School. Hardin-Central had a full squad of cheerleaders, but Northwestern had only one, Tori Adams. She explained that many of her teammates were sick and the game was rescheduled which caused scheduling conflicts. The coach said she did not have to cheer, but she felt she should support the team, so she did a few cheers alone, and then sat down.

But not for long. The entire squad from Hardin-Central came over to join her. They soon learned her cheers and were able to present them to the crowd. Many in the stands supported the girls in this rare initiative. "They learned some of my cheers, and I learned some of theirs," said Tori. "It was a big relief."
