Hiller Cheerleaders Get Ready for Nationals

Just two days before they leave for Florida to compete in Nationals, the Hillers Cheerleaders got in one final practice. Junior Katherine Sheridan, who was with the team when they last went to nationals believes the secret to the Hillers success, especially for those who haven't competed in nationals before, is to stay relaxed and let their hard work and training shine through.

In order to go to Florida the girls had to raise $18,000, which they achieved by coordinating various community fundraisers.
