The Northwestern State University Cheerleading team held its first Cheer Clinic of the year at Prather Coliseum Saturday, February 19. Fifteen young men and women aged 14 to 18 from area high schools attended the clinic to sharpen their skills and to learn about the NSU Cheer Team. Ms. Madelyn Spillman and Ms. Abby Powell are seniors at Natchitoches Central and are looking to join the long tradition of alumni from NCHS, Lakeview and St. Mary’s on the NSU Cheer Team.
The clinic, taught by NSU Cheer coaches, assisted by members of the current NSU Cheer Team, gave the participants small group and one on one instruction in stunting. There will be future clinics in March and April, culminating in Cheerleading Tryouts on April 23.
The NSU Cheer team supports the university’s various sports teams at their home games as well as competing in their own right in national competitions. They are a hard-working group of young men and women with a solid record of success in and out of the classroom.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes all the best to the young men and women attending the clinic as they finish their high school careers and move on the next step. Fork ‘em Demons!
