As a varsity competitive cheerleader , the stress is REAL. Learning new cheers and stunt grips, it is a really difficult sport. This all pays off when you get that first, second, or even third place trophy for your school, but it is disappointing when you feel that your school does not support you.

     Lumen Christi students do not attend cheer competitions, but will go to any other sport. This makes us feel unsupported because none of our peers will come to watch how hard we have worked. Students here favor certain sports, and this should not be a thing.

     The 2017-2018 competitive cheer team has gotten a 3rd place ,1st place, and  4th place finishes throughout their season, yet no one has been there from the school to acknowledge this. Every sport should be treated with the same dignity. Competitive cheer is a dangerous sport that we do for others to see how hard we can work for something we love.

    When our school won the state championship in football, it was a city-wide celebration and is actually still being celebrated to this day – IT HAPPENED AROUND THANKSGIVING. It is a great accomplishment , of course, but we feel left out when we finish in first place out of the 3 and 4 District and 2nd out of the whole competition and got a “good jobs girls” in an e-mail that nobody reads. Yes, we got a post on the Facebook page , but that was only once. Where’s the love, Lumen ?
