THE FREDERICK COUNTY CHAMPION TUSCARORA HIGH SCHOOL CHEERLEADING SQUAD ON FREDERICK COUNTY SPORTS WEEKEND ON WFMD THIS SUNDAY!!!!!
First year coach Stephani Baker has led her Tuscarora High School Titan cheerleaders to the Frederick County championship.
Coach Baker along with Senior cheerleaders Sara Conway, Elizabeth Pickens and Heather Wilson appear on Frederick County Sports Weekend this Sunday. High School Cheerleading has changed over the years into a grueling, demanding sport with long hours of practice and some exposure to injury involved. Cheerleaders now are expected to be gymnasts and have to be able to run long distances to even be considered for the team. They are judged on several criteria at the start of the season. Conway, Pickens and Wilson say they love the sport and have been on various cheerleading squads since they were five or six years old. Strength is also involved as several of the formations and routines involve holding up or carrying fellow team members. In other words its not enough to just know the Titans fight song although they are still expected to cheer and still expected to yell for the football team when the temperature dips near freezing on cold October and November nights. Listen to the stories from the three Senior cheerleaders and learn things you never knew about what it takes today to be a high school cheerleader. The Tuscarora Titans Cheerleaders on Frederick County Sports Weekend this Sunday (2/10) at 12:05 pm on 930 WFMD Radio and the streaming audio of wfmd.com
