PERU – Fifth-year head coach Brooke Earnest has recently announced the names of the 28 student-athletes who will be a part of a historic time on the Peru State campus. These 28 will be a part of the first competitive cheer program in Bobcat history and will begin competing during the 2019-20 season.
Fifteen returners from last year’s cheerleading team will be joined by 13 newcomers to the program. The 28 will be cheering for the football and basketball teams while working to determine which 20 will be a part of the competitive team. The team will have their first competition in January.
Returning members include Destiny Maguire of Greenwood.
New members include Rebecca Wilson of Ashland.
