Woodside’s cheer team is once again steered towards an early end due to COVID-19, preventing them from attending competitions as they have in past years. 

The team is ending their season with two final performances for the basketball and soccer senior nights this Friday on February 11, and the seniors, as well as the dance and cheer teams, are hopeful for support at 4:30 P.M. and 6:00 P.M. With the end in sight, Woodside sophomore and flier Maddie Danella recalled the season, despite COVID-19’s effects.

“I thought we did pretty good,” Danella said. “It was kind of my first football season since I’m a sophomore and last year we didn’t really have a season…I made a lot of friends.”

Even though the season was cut short, the team made the best of their situation and finished strong, planning to celebrate their hard work.

“Our coach wants to have something next week, a little get-together, to celebrate the season and the seniors,” Danella said.

If you would like to participate in fun half-times, competitions, rallies, sidelines, and more, the cheer team is holding tryouts in mid-March (more accurate dates to come soon). 

“I really enjoy cheer and we’re losing a lot of valuable teammates due to them being seniors, but I hope more people come next year,” Danella encouraged.
