Cheerleaders selected for squad

Four Panther cheerleaders have been selected for an "All-American Cheerleader" squad sponsored by the American Cheer Federation.

Senior Jonna Grunden, junior Shanel Hanson, sophomore Casie Miller, and eighth grader Chantalle Cooreman were selected for the honor during a cheering camp held at Lake Okoboji. Sixty-eight girls tried out for the squad, and 20 were selected. For the tryouts, candidates needed to perform a cheer and two jumps.

The All-American Cheerleader squad will perform a half-time routine at a college football game in Florida this December. The girls hope to raise money to defray the cost of their trip. For more information, people can contact the team's coach, Missie Erbes, at 507-828-8894.

Fifteen Panther cheerleaders attended the cheering camp and were named "Most spirited" squad.
