Cheerleaders Elijah Blanchard (jr.), Rayne McIlrath (jr.), and Emilie Thomas (sr.) were nominated by Coach Angie Damman to participate in the annual Iowa Cheer Honor Squad at the halftime of the 2A and 3A State Football Championships at the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls.
Each school can nominate 3 cheerleaders to represent their program to honor junior and senior cheerleaders across the state who have contributed to their cheerleading programs with their time, talent, and dedication. Participating in the Honor Squad were cheerleaders from over 100 high schools across the state of Iowa. Preparation for the event included an 8-hour practice learning routines and cheers on Sunday, November 6th, and another practice on Thursday, November 17th in Cedar Falls.
