George Blankenbaker ‘12 cheers on the Southport Football team. He attended most of the football games with his closest friends.

The 2011-2012 school year was filled to the brim with laughter, decisions, hard work, friendships and memories. A completely new atmosphere for some, but also the last time here for others. Every day something new was happening, from the anticipation of the first day to the exuberance of hearing the last bell on the last day of school. From Friday night games, to studying for tests, from club meetings to music rehersals, each day was met with new additons to our collection of expiernces.

Push-ups for Touchdowns

Cheerleaders change up how they celebrate victory.

Mixing It Up

Southport’s cheerleading squad had something different than what most schools had. They had a male cheerleader. Junior Kory Kosegi was involved with the Southport cheerleading program since freshman year. “I was in second grade and saw the movie “Bring It On” and I knew from then that I wanted to be a cheerleader,” Kosegi said. He participated in everything the girls did but also brought a new twist to the squad. “The stunting, definitely,” Kosegi said was his favorite part of cheerleading.

For the cheerleaders cheerleading is not just all about chanting in front of the crowd. When the football team scores a touchdown it’s important that the cheerleaders celebrate and they have different ways of doing it. “We usually do kick lines, jumps, and tumble,” sophomore Shaunte Russell said. This year they even occasionally did push-ups for the number of points scored. They like to mix it up and keep the audience entertained.

Team Chemistry

Yell Out Your Colors Cardinals Cheerleaders change how

Drama affects the cheerleader’s chemistry

Drama is something that at many times affects the Southport cheerleaders. This year the cheerleaders experienced a lot of drama that really came to affect how they worked together as a group. “Drama splits the team up into cliques and makes everyone go against each other. When everyone is mad at each other things fall apart and the happy moods turn into stressful moods,” sophomore cheerleader Taylor Woodsen said. When it comes to any team activity chemistry is really important to the success of the group. It can make or break how they work together. However being on a team isn’t just about winning, it’s about the friendships you have and the

they interact with the crowd

The cheerleaders helped make spirit for Homecoming 2011. 3- Alexandria DeHart ’12 and Kory Kosegi ’13 cheer during a game.

The squad wore pink to support breast cancer at a game in October. 5- The cheerleaders line up in a kick line to celebrate a touchdown. Both JV and Varsity got to cheer at Lucas Oil.

In the past cheerleaders have been more of a background noise that goes along with the normal sounds of high school football games. They didn’t lead the student cheers because the student booster club normally ran them and they didn’t interact with the crowd as much as they could have. This year things changed at those Friday night games because now they play a huge part in leading cheers for the crowd, especially for the cheer block. “Our cheerleading program now is a lot more interactive with the crowd by working a lot with the booster club and actually communicating”, senior cheerleader Alexandria DeHart said. It involves both the cheerleaders and the booster club working together to raise the spirit in Southport’s stands. Senior booster club officer Cody Camp said, “We follow along with their cheers and as a booster club we like to go down to the track for most of the third quarter and lead cheers with the cheerleaders from there.” Instead of just cheering about defense and offense the cheerleaders do a lot of cheers that keep the audience’s attention and that they think the crowd enjoys. “We have incorporated "easier" cheers that are more fun for the crowd to take part in,” explained junior cheerleader Erin Carpenter on how they really got the spectators to participate in the spirit of Friday night football. This year the cheerleaders changed their effect on the crowd and made it so they’re not only seen but heard as well.

memories you make. “When it comes down to it we still work together but not as easily, drama makes things ten times harder and more stressful,” sophomore Savanna Hickle said. Being on the squad together helped form friendships that wouldn’t have existed otherwise. While drama can break a team down, the cheerleaders chose to overcome their differences and push towards success at competitions and games. “Cheerleading this year was affected by drama a lot, but at the end, it showed a lot of people who their true friends were”, senior cheerleader Alexandria DeHart said.

A Sport or Not? “No, because they don’t compete on the level of other teams or put in the amount of practice as my sport does,” senior Ethan Hawes said.

“No, because it’s not physical and they’re not actually scoring points and competing,” freshman Danielle Keeler said.

This year’s Homecoming theme was based off of the Marvel comic books. All four classes had the opportunity to create a float and banner based on the Marvel character they chose, and display them for a panel of judges. For the second year in a row, the class of 2014 won first place in the float competition. Designing the floats may or may not be the easiest thing to do. “When you know what you want to do, it’s easy. But if you wait until the last minute then it can seem pretty difficult,” senior Meghan Ahaus said. Families, students, and friends lined the streets around Southport and waited to watch the Homecoming Parade and collect candy thrown from the floats. Girl’s powderpuff football took place the day before the parade and game. “I play powderpuff because it’s fun and I got the chance to experience and make memories for my junior year,” junior Grace Clark said. In the end, the members of the senior class pulled out a win and were declared the champions of Powderpuff 2011. Homecoming week isn’t all about the games, parade, and dance. It gives students the chance to get closer and become a better school. “It brought me closer to the upperclassmen and allowed me to bond with them,” freshman Brooke Jenkins said.
