Waukee Cheerleaders Earn Coed Division State Champion Title

For the first time in school history Waukee High School’s Competition Cheerleading Squad was named Coed Division State Champions on November 7.

The team, comprised of 18 girls and Isaiah Thompson and Kaiwan Curtis, have worked extraordinarily hard this season. They were ecstatic to not only compete in the division for the first time, but to also finish first.

“It’s more difficult than people give it credit,” Thompson said. “We are always practicing our gymnastic skills, building endurance or constantly lifting people in the air. We come out of practices exhausted.”

Curtis believes boys shouldn’t be afraid to go out for cheer because no one can predict what may come out of it. Curtis said he has made an incredible bond with the team and from the beginning his experience has been amazing.

The team hopes to continue their success at Nationals in January.

Congratulations to the Waukee High School Competition Cheer Squad!
