Cheerleaders Show Support, Inspiration and Athleticism
As the sports seasons morph at Mineola High School, most student-athletes find themselves with new teammates under the tutelage of different coaches every few months. However, one team acts as the unsung heroes for the other squads and bucks this trend. Their physical prowess is no less (and maybe more) demanding than any other group donning a uniform during the school year. And, the degree of difficulty is, at times, far worse than any experiences on the gridiron, court or diamond combined. The sport has grown in popularity but receives little recognition in local circles. With the outdoor facilities dimmed and the hardwood and gym mats seeking the light, the contributions of these devoted young ladies who call themselves the Mineola Mustang Cheerleaders should be noted and respected.
