Leesville Road High School 2022-2023 varsity cheerleading team is Wake County first place Varsity Large Coed champions and NCHSAA 1st place champs. There are 22 girls and 5 boys on the team which is coached by Amy Sellers for 5 years.
“Coaching varsity is a lot of work and a lot of fun at the same time. Watching the athletes work hard to obtain their goals throughout the season is inspiring,” said Amy Sellers, head coach, texted.
The cheerleading season is about to end on February 11. If the boys or girls basketball team makes it to the playoffs, then when both basketball teams wrap up their season, then cheerleading wraps up their season, too.
“I’m sad for it to end, especially because of competition season and basketball wrapping up,” texted Carson Miller, sophomore who has been on the LRHS cheerleading team for 2 years.
“I really like the basketball games because I understand basketball more and it’s more up close and interesting to see,” said Bella Volkringer, junior cheerleader.
The team’s bond this year is close since they all spend every day with each other, inordr to win first place at competition.
“Everyone is really nice on the team, and everyone gets along really well and we are with each other everyday so we kind of make the best of it and it makes practices fun,” said Volkringer.
Usually you see the athlete’s improvements at the end of the season. “I have improved on stunting and just like being more close with the girls,” texted Miller.
The new cheerleading team will start once football season starts with a brand new Jv and Varsity team.
