Week 2

When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream.

When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality.

This week we focused on hitting the first half of the routine, but with some injuries and lack of time we were only able to perform a section of the routine at the last mens home game. Were now trying to make the transition from game ready to competition ready. Practices are becoming more intense, and coaches are starting to be more strict. It’s time to get focused and work even harder than we have all year.

“When competition practice starts, it’s a more serious attitude. It’s all about getting your stunt group to work as a machine and all be on the same page. Personally, a work-hard attitude is everything, and without it, your team will not succeed.” Bethany Harrell of

On Friday’s practice we did a team bonding activity where we all brought our socks in for nationals and wrote a quote that inspires us.

Goal for next week:

Keep running the full routine

All money is due March 1st for nationals.

How we fundraised :

-Worked at Ravens’ games handing out pamphlets or worked at the tents at the tailgates

-Worked competitions by helping judge, set up, and run warm up stations

-At football games we walked around the tailgates and asked for donations, explaining to fans that we were trying to raise money for nationals and telling them about our success last year and our goals for this year. We also did tuck for a buck, meaning girls on our team would throw standing tucks for fans at the tailgates for a dollar donation.

-Ask for family, friends, and businesses to sponsor us
