Middle School taps cheerleaders
Lansing Middle School will have a batch of fresh faces showing school spirit at school sporting events.
Next year's new LMS cheerleaders are sixth-graders Heather Cook, Miya Snodgrass, Shermanee Phillips, Kacee Bechtold, Sarah Fonderaro, Sarah Letson, Lauren Count, Jessica Sewing, Jillian Moya, Amanda Glynn, Lisa Everett, Kelsey O'Brien and Heather Portenier. Only two current members will be returning to the squad, seventh-graders Jennifer Totelben and Morgan Grenier.
The girls participated in a three-day cheer clinic and completed tryouts April 9.
The new squad first performed together April 12 at an LMS pep rally when Principal Kerry Brungardt announced all grades at the school had achieved the Building Standard of Excellence in all areas assessed and would receive a day off.
