Thank you to Varsity Songleading Captain Olivia Trejo for representing The Spirit Team on the ‘panel’ at the 8th grade Visitation as well as ASB members Hannah Jo and Lee Bahar. 

We appreciate these lovely young ladies and the Charger Girl image that they projected to the incoming Freshmen at AHS!

*PLEASE ..you must remember that period 5 Spirit Team is a class…and YOU RECEIVE A GRADE!

*Even if you are not returning to the Team you MUST be in attendance and  dress correctly to work out…

IF YOU ARE NOT OFFICIALLY EXCUSED FROM CLASS YOU WILL BE MARKED ABSENT…and IF YOU ARE…that WILL BE REPORTED TO THE OFFICE AND REFLECTED IN YOUR CLASS GRADE!!!!!!!

Spirit Team Trivia:

The darling girls pictured above are from the very FIRST Spirit Team group that were re-named ‘Charger Girls’ in 2008!

They may look familiar as they were also in the ‘Basic Football Cheers’ video that most of you learned your very first cheers from when you joined the Team.

 

Time passes as they all are now approx. 26-27 years old. 

One is married and they are all very successful business women in their own right!

 

Once a Charger Girl…always a Charger Girl!
