Cheer tryouts follow the virtual path


The cheerleading team at Westside is a major crowd leading, spirit-raising, team that shows immense promise and talent through jumps, stunting, tumbling, and even elements of dance. COVID-19 has made its way across the world and over to the United States, causing many schools to shut down. The school closure has caused many athletic teams to move auditions and tryouts to virtual platforms.
