Spirit Squads Cheer Their Teams to Victory


Jillian Johnson, Staff Contributor

After a busy fall of cheering on football and soccer, the Arapahoe spirit teams entered a season that they have been preparing for all year; competition season. Both the Toms and Cheers have headed off their seasons with success and hard work. 

It’s so amazing that after cheering on other teams, those same teams come to support us at our competitions.
