Cheer team performs with local youth tonight at Civil War game

The cheer team is ready to get down tonight at the Civil War football game between North Bend and Marshfield.
Featuring a kid’s clinic, the team and children aged kindergarten through 7th grade will perform a dance to the song “Shake it off” by Taylor Swift during half-time. The team has been working on the dance for two weeks.

Senior captain Emily Burgey said there is a different routine for each age group.

“The more advanced kids who are 5th through 7th grade will learn a little more technical routine, while the younger girls will learn a more simple routine,” Burgey said.

More than 70 turned out to participate in the event, including two boys. The clinic was not only a fun event for kids, but a fundraiser to help support the cheer team.

“It’s our biggest fundraiser of the year,” Burgey said.
