Cape cheerleading coach Courtney Hennessey: “These kids mean so much to me. They are always appreciative of still having workout practices even though everything is up in the air! They are working hard and not giving up on their sport, so I’m not gonna give up on them this season.”
The coed crew with a big incoming freshmen class is out there every Wednesday morning at 7:30 a.m. working out and keeping sharp.
“The turf is slick at 7:30, but by 8 a.m., it has dried out enough that we don’t have to worry about slipping,” Hennessey said.
Cape cheer is its own entity, with head-to-head competitions against other squads outside of supporting sports teams.
These athletes are like young pups who need to run, otherwise they get squirrelly during the day.
