Two Cheerleaders Take a Bite Out of the Big Apple


Amanda Stoyanof | NEWS WRITER

An elite group of cheerleaders and dancers performed in the 88th annual 2014 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, two of which are from La Cueva High School. Isabella Grier and Lauren Spencer, seniors, are two of more than 700 cheering and dance team members representing the company, Varsity Spirit. They only had a couple of weeks to prepare their cheerleaders for the big event Grier has been a cheerleader for eight years. She first became involved with the cheer “through the Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) All American contest”. For having such a one in a life time opportunity to cheer for the Spirit of America: Varsity Spirit Team, Isabella is “expecting exciting field trips around New York City, such as plays, sightseeing building and shopping opportunities”. Spencer has been a cheerleader for six years and is currently the senior captain of her cheer team. Spencer was elected by attending and cheering at the UCA All American contest during this past summer. These cheerleaders have to perform a routine on National TV and of course walk in the parade. Spencer is expecting “it to be really cold” in New York City. We welcome home two lucky cheerleaders which were fortunate to experience something so grand, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Grier, senior, said “It was an amazing experience meeting other cheerleaders around the country, definitely hope that some of my cheerleaders will do this too next year!”

    It’s good to see La Cueva cheerleaders represented on a national scale. Having a few cheerleader friends myself, I think that it would be cool to see them up there.
