Next, on Saturday, February 15th, it was the last home game of the season and my last game cheerleading. Laura, the other basketball cheerleading squad assistant captain, called the cheers for this days game. The overall game was very exciting. A lot of the basketball players were doing well as they were making all the three-pointers they were shooting. Later, seconds before half time, the only senior on the basketball team during the 2013-2014 season threw a hail mary shot from the opposite end of the court and MADE IT AT THE BUZZER! (Video of the shot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gjBWxkKnJy4). It was the best moment. The cheerleaders, the crowd and the team were jumping and yelling in excitement.
Unfortunately though, even with all the given excitement and accuracy in the shots the players were making, the Saints last home basketball game of the season ended in a loss.
As it was my last game of my cheerleading career, I would like to thank everyone who has been there and made my time as a St. Scholastica cheerleader great. It has been an absolute honor to serve as Football and Basketball cheer captain. Even more importantly, I am grateful for the people I have gotten to know. I have been cheerleading since the 9th grade, and although I am excited as I approach my college graduation this spring, I am also very sad to leave cheerleading and all my fellow cheerleaders behind. But, I encourage all CSS cheerleaders to continue cheerleading because I will definitely be back as an alumni to cheer on my Saints and cheerleaders, and I hope to see familiar faces in addition to new faces cheering on the Saints to victory! I love you all!!
