Tonight, the Madisonville North Hopkins cheerleaders will host their annual Back to School Dance for all local third, fourth and fifth graders who are invited to attend. The doors to the high school will be open from 5 to 8 p.m., with the admission fee, $10, collected upon entry.
Funds raised from the dance will go directly towards the cheerleaders’ competition fees, choreography, travel expenses, uniforms and equipment. This year’s team consists of 34 girls who plan to compete nearly every weekend in November and December, with the KHSAA state competition in December. The UCA Nationals will be held in Orlando, FL in February 2023.
“This is the first year in history that MNHSS Cheer will have two separate competition teams. With the pandemic challenges of the past few years, the team has not been able to host camps and clinics that are critical to raising the necessary funds to have a successful season, head coach Jamie Kerperien said.
There will also be light concessions available for purchase during the dance.
Hosted by the cheerleaders and their parents, they are looking forward to seeing everyone this evening.
