Senior Cheryl Ma, junior Maddie Cooke and seniors Anna Chen and Haran Kumar pose with hats from Ozarkland. “We stopped at Ozarkland and bought silly hats, and I bought a Chili’s hat. Ozarkland was midwestern and had all of these funny signs,” Cooke said. “One sign that we saw said ‘American by birth, rebel by choice,’ and that was a joke we kept saying to each other the whole time [at Jeff City].”

West’s Cheerleading squad performs a pyramid for the student body. The cheerleaders spent several late nights perfecting the performance. “It was a little nerve-racking being at the top since I didn’t want to mess it up in front of the whole school or ruin it for the team,” freshman and flyer Sophie Pellegrino said. The cheerleading squad also performed in the fall pep rally.

Dressed in red, Winter Guard parades across the gym with their flags in hand. The winter guard performed their dance to the song “Boom Clap”. “My favorite dance move is the pop toss which is when we all throw our flags up at the same time. It was one of the big ensemble moments of the performance,” freshman Deirdre Jost said. Winter Guard has competed in four competitions so far.
