This is a completely preliminary, tentative work schedule, arbitrarily arranged. Each Cheer and Drill squad member must work at least one track meet. If you have a conflict, it is your responsibility to work it out with your track or golf coaches, parents or employers. Please make sure that you inform Mr. Mallory of any trades or substitutions. You may ask a squad mate to trade with you or to take your date if they are willing to work two nights. You may also ask an NHS member to work for you in exchange for community service hours, but we would prefer that only Cheer, Drill, or NHS members work Track concessions. They should be approved by Mr. Mallory or Mrs. Cogdill, and please inform Mr. Mallory ahead of time so that he can adjust the official schedule.

Boys are bad for you

Here is a photo that says it all. A woman needs a man, like a fish needs a bicycle.
Focus on your grades, not your social life. That's what college is for!

Seriously though; follow my advice and you'll save a lot of pain and heartache- avoid boys during all of middle school and high school. That does not mean, go for college boys while you're in MS/HS- it means avoid them. All of them. Seriously. Go ask your Dad, he'll tell you the same thing.

Women's March Madness! 10 Tips for Dads & Daughters During the Women's NCAA Basketball Championship

March Madness gets underway March 22nd for women's college basketball and March 20th for the men (and the start of the WNBA season isn't far behind!). This is an exciting time for dads to watch or listen to the women's game with their daughters and stepdaughters. Here are some tips for fathers and stepfathers during tournament time.

1. Remember that your daughter or stepdaughter hungers for your attention. Make popcorn and watch the tournament together for a great opportunity to talk about the game, or anything else on her mind! Women’s NCAA Division I games are on ESPN and ESPN2—the Women’s Final Four is April 6 and 8 in Tampa.

2. Fill out brackets together (find them here.) Dads & Daughters member David Powers shares his story:

My wife, daughters and I all fill out brackets and have a lot of fun tracking who won, who lost -- and we even give prizes (for example, the winner picks where to have dinner next time we dine out). We learn about colleges they may not have known, talk about national (and sometimes international) geography, look at player profiles to see where they were from, what they were studying in school, etc. In short, a very low cost way to connect with your daughter!

3. Celebrate these powerful women. Compliment a great shot, steal, or smart pass. Our daughters hear so often that men only care about women’s looks. Show your excitement for the game by commenting on players’ skills and physical capabilities. And if commercials objectify women (e.g., scantily clad women in beer commercials), call the station, the product manufacturer, and the NCAA to complain.

4. Talk about your basketball days, if you played. Talk about how hard it is to master, while still incredibly fun for anyone to play. Ask her opinion on game situations as they arise. Then get interested together in other women’s sports, like golf, soccer and volleyball.

5. Read articles together about the games you watched or missed in the newspaper or online. If your news source has inadequate coverage of the women’s tourney, write a letter to the editor to ask for more articles.

6. Watch ESPN 2’s “License to Thrive” documentary on Title IX during the women’s NCAA tournament. It premieres March 30 at 1 PM ET and tells how Title IX opened up so many new opportunities for girls and women in sports and other arenas. See

7. Come up with a fun activity or contest related to what happens on the court. (E.g.: If her favorite player hits a 3-pointer in the 13th minute of the first half, Dad has to help Daughter with her chores the next day.)

8. Talk about the positive trends in basketball (on-court hustle or its increasingly international flavor) as well as the controversial ones (recruiting abuses or the question of male vs. female coaches) and ask her what life lessons she learns from the game.

9. Go to a game in person (and bring Mom, too!)--the Division I Regional championships are March 29-April 1 in New Orleans, Spokane, Greensboro and Oklahoma City. The Division II Elite Eight plays March 26-29 in Kearny, Nebraska and Division III March 21-22 in Holland, Michigan. There's nothing like the atmosphere of a real tournament game.

10. When the game is over, go outside and shoot hoops together!

Cheer Alumni Prayer Request

Hey gang,

Whether you cheered for me at Lutheran High or Boyer Valley, or are still at Boyer Valley, I wanted to share some sad news with you and ask you to keep a fellow former cheerleader in your prayers.

Kelli Allen, Boyer Valley Class of 2005, lost her father (Mom's husband) recently. What I heard was that he had blood clots in his lungs and had an aneurysm. He was only in his 40s.

If you know Kelly, maybe send her a note or card or FaceBook message or something. Whether you know her or not, please remember her and her mom in your prayers, I can't imagine how difficult this must be for them.
