Multiple Teams · Wrestling Cheer Squad Gears Up for Season


The Mound Westonka High School wrestling cheerleading squad held clinics Oct. 25 and 26 to determine this year’s team. A total of 16 girls tried out for the 12-person squad.

This year’s team is led by senior captains Sarah Jenkin and Kennedy Murphy, as well as co-captains senior Katie MacDonald and junior Lexi Jolicoeur. Rounding out the squad are sophomores Cassie Ybarra and Mandy Peterson; ninth-graders Ella Dummer and Lindsey Gunderson, and seventh-graders Piper Kimbrel, Maisie Wheeler, Elizabeth Usry and Kayla Anderson.

The team is looking forward to a great season. The annual candy bar fundraiser starts Wednesday, Nov. 14. The team will be purchasing a new rip-away banner for the home matches this year. They are also looking forward to community service activities, including Feed My Starving Children and bagging groceries at Cub Foods.

“We look forward to a great year supporting the Mound Westonka wrestlers,” said coach Candie Jolicoeur
