“East cheer has a lot of fun girls and Tim to offer,” Dunn said. “I’m excited to start next year with Lindsey as our head coach. Cheer is one of those sports with extra fun things to get involved in. My favorite part about tryouts is going in in front of the judges and going crazy with my spirit. I’m excited to see the program move forward next year to reach new levels of amazing cheer.”

I like seeing everyone who is trying out and what they’ve been working on to get to all year. It shows everyone’s skills that they’ve built up through the year.
