Cheerleaders are talented athletes who are an asset to any high school. Besides being supportive figures, there are teams that go beyond cheering at football games and pep-assemblies.

The Lady Blue Devils from Columbus, Georgia were a competitive cheerleading squad who earned a spot in their state’s championship. A competitive routine usually combines techniques from dance and tumbling, along with jumps and stunts.

Cheerleading has come a long way since back in the day.

Interestingly enough, females weren’t included when college clubs began forming in the late 1800s, which were kept all-male.

According to Varsity, females weren’t allowed to cheer at the University of Minnesota until 1923. The most growth of women joining cheer took place in the ’40s, however, when numerous male students went off to WWII.

Over time it’s progressed into the sport that it is, with females proving they have what it takes to be amazing cheerleaders.
