Warrior Cheerleaders hosted their annual Cheer Fusion on Saturday, Feb. 5 at 10:30 a.m in the field house. The event hosted Grisham and Canyon Vista cheerleaders to prepare them for their final performances.

After stretching as a group, each middle school team ran through their choreography. Several Westwood cheerleaders were impressed by how some students had progressed from the previous cheer clinic in October 2021.

“I think it was really fun,” Maddy Serpas ‘24. “It was really nice seeing how much they’ve grown since before. I think everybody did really well.”

Running down the mat, the girls tumbled in sync to their music queues. They each moved into different formations as a group. Standing in tall towers, they reached out to the audience chanting. 

“I feel really ecstatic about performing and doing it successfully,” future warrior Izzie Fedorov ‘26 said. “We worked on our stunts really hard, and practiced every single day.”

In between each performance, they played group games to get to know their peers. These included “Rock Paper Scissors,” and “Front of the Boat, Back of the Boat.” The participating students sprinted across the floor with high energy. 

“All the teams did really good.” future warrior Maria Ozuna ‘26. “I feel like we all just kind of got together and got closer than we were before.”

The middle school cheerleaders plan to continue practicing for future cheer events. 

“I feel really relieved that it’s done and that we hit everything,” future warrior Caitlin Romansky ‘27 said. “I’m also kind of sad because that’s the last time eighth graders are going to be able to perform with us.”
