It has been a good year for the Hillers Cheerleaders and they are excited for what's to come. Head Coach Melissa Zwang talked about what the funding will go towards: "The proceeds go to Friends of Hopkinton Cheerleading to support all the financial needs of the program like uniforms, gymnastics, mats and any travel trips we go on."
