Cheerleaders Surround Girl From Rival Team Who Was Cheering All Alone

http://www.reshareworthy.com/cheerleaders-join-lone-cheerleader/

Being on a cheerleading squad usually means a team experience, but that wasn’t Tori Adams felt when she was the lone member of her squad to show up to cheer on her school.

But Tori wasn’t alone for long, when girls from the opposing squad joined her on the court at the CLAA Conference Tournament in Missouri.

It turns out that Tori was all alone because all the other girls on the cheer squad for the Northwestern Eagles came down with an illness except for her.

It was quite a dramatic turn of events, but Tori felt obligated to represent her school. She told told FOX4 News: “My coach gave me the option to cheer or not cheer, and I felt like I had to be there for the team.”

In this video clip, Tori, who is dressed in a blue outfit, was looking a bit embarrassed and scared in front of the large audience all by herself. But she is soon surrounded by girls from the Hardin-Central cheer squad – all total strangers to Tori.

2. How wonderful.

That actually moved me to tears.

And that, dear friends, is what sportsmanship is all about.

7. I like this story. It reminds me of when I was in high school

and it was the norm at high school games for the cheer leading squads to go over and do a cheer for the other school's fans, which was generally reciprocated. Our band would also learn, and play, the other team's fight song for every game. Fans from both schools would applaud these performances.

I'm glad that this kind of sportsmanship seems to be getting resuscitated.

11. I'll say! When I was a cheerleader (in the 6th grade), I had quite a different experience.

One game in particular, when the opposing team's cheerleaders used their much greater numbers to quickly learn our cheers, and then drown us out, inserting their team's name while stealing our cheers. It was brutal--and these were grade-schoolers.

So heartening to hear that kids these days, at least some of them, have evolved.
