The Glenbard South cheer
team started their season on
October 23. The varsity and jv
teams will first compete at
Rockford Guilford High School
on December 10th.
Both varsity and jv teams
compete during their winter
season. Each team has
between 10 and 16 girls with a
variety of skills. Some of these
skills include jumps, stunts,
tumbling, and motions.
“Both of our levels (JV and
Varsity) have routines that
really accent each team’s
strengths which is to the credit
of our choreographer and
friend Ryan Buado. All the
coaches are really happy with
the results of everyone’s hard
work thus far,” said head coach
Lauren Friedericks.
Varsity and jv compete their
routines at many high school
competitions such as
Barrington High School(Dec.3),
Andrew High School(Dec.16),
and Oak Forest High
School(Jan.14).

“I always look forward to
competing at Oak Forest each
season. It is such a well run
competition and the coaches
and cheerleaders at Oak
Forest are so polite and
welcoming,” said Friedericks.
“Barrington’s JV Jinglefest is
also becoming a favorite too. It
is fun to have a competition
dedicated to just our JV level
and give them a day to really
shine!”
Towards the end of the season
the varsity team competes at
the IHSA sectional. If the
varsity team places in the top
5 of their division, they are
able to go to the state
competition in Normal, Illinois.
Senior Kaitlyn Chlapecka
stated “My main goal is to get
to state!”
