Gull Lake Varsity Cheer will be heading to Kalamazoo Central High School on January 14 for its SMAC meet. The event next Monday will take place for three hours, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Participating schools include Battle Creek Central, Mattawan, Niles and Portage Central.

For a full list of schools who will be competing and other information, a link will be provided.

“Competitions are always nerve-racking,” senior Hannah Elwell said.

For the SMAC competition, each team will be judged and given a score.

“Judges can deduct points for the smallest things like pointing our toes or not landing a jump in sequence [with] the team,” Elwell said.

Gull Lake Varsity Cheer is near halfway through their season, and the competitions are only getting more exciting to watch.

“This is my fourth year at varsity level, and [the meets] never get easier, just more competitive,” Elwell said.

Be prepared to make the trip to Kalamazoo Central High School to cheer on the Gull Lake Varsity Cheer team  as they continue to build on their season.

I’m a senior at Gull Lake High School, and this is my first year on staff. I enjoy writing about our school sports’ programs and other areas as well. Having a deep interest and enjoyment in our English classes at Gull Lake, I’ve decided to pursue a different side of writing by doing newspaper and hope to provide entertaining articles for our viewers. Being involved in sports such as cross country and track, while also being invested to clubs such as Debate and Model UN, I write about topics that affect both myself and classmates.
