Nicole and Tara do the "hands" stunt with fliers Sara and Cari , while they cheer "We are the Portagers! Mighty, Mighty Portagers!", a popular crowd cheer.

The squad preps for the "split mount" during the quarter break...going up!

Once Megan is in the split mount they cheer , " If you want to win this game, you got to yell with all your might! We yell go, you yell fight!" Another cheer to get the crowd involved.

A couple of young cheerleaders that have actually been to a previous cheer clinic at OHS, join in the last few minutes. "Keep it up...Keep it up.. Keep it up Blue!" Good Job girls!

Front, Tara , middle row, Sara, Megan and Cari. Back Row, Nicole and Felicia pose for a photo during halftime. Megan received a black eye at the previous game while practicing a "basket toss", which is a common partner stunt. SO, yes, cheerleading can be considered a contact sport!

Sara Schmoke goes into a "pike". This is Sara's first season for cheering and what a job she has done to date!

Senior Megan Mattson leads the squad in the "Ready To Go" cheer at the start of the game.

The squad chants , "Defense , get tough! D it UP!" to spur on our Portager defense.

Bryce, tries to block the blue teams shot with fellow students,during half time of the Freesoil/OHS game.

The "underclassmen " took their game very seriously tonight!
