The 2017-2018 cheer season has been a very successful year for MHS. From attending their very first UCA camp last summer to constantly perfecting new skills, the team is prepared to take on the basketball district competition starting on February 20, 2018.

The girls will be competing against the Bell County Bobcats, Harlan County Black Bears, and Harlan Green Dragons. Coaches Carlena Carter, Jennifer Green, and Kaelyn Hensley are very confident in the team. Coach Carlena stated, “The girls, along with their senior leaders, have been committed to the goal of becoming the 2018 district champions. Since being in the 52nd District, MHS has never won. This team has the drive, dedication, and determination to make school history.”

The team has been perfecting their sideline cheers, pre-game routine, and floor cheer with the hopes of hanging the first cheer banner in the MHS gymnasium. With the help of the “YELLer Jackets,” the crowd will be more excited than ever. Seniors Owen Collins, Dawson Day, and Corey Hariston are just three of the many students supporting the cheerleaders.

“Our cheerleaders are by far the best and loudest cheerleaders in this district!” Owen exclaimed.

“I feel like we have boat loads of spirit, and the amount of enthusiasm throughout the cheerleaders influences our amazing student section,” Dawson explained.

Corey said, “I believe our girls are really capable of getting first place.”  

The girls will be judged during the boys game, and they will be cheering against the Harlan County Black Bears. Harlan County is has won more than any team, so the stakes are high. With the school behind them, the MHS cheerleaders feel as if nothing can stop them, so be sure to come out and support our Jackets!
