LMS Cheer Squad Brings Home First Award

LMS Cheerleaders Win Cheer Star Nationals

Between games and other school events that require the support of the Lakeside Middle School Cheerleaders, the girls finally found something where someone else can do the cheering for them. 

Last weekend, the 16-member cheer squad traveled up the road to the University of North Texas to compete in its first-ever competition, called Cheer Star Nationals. Up against five other teams, LMS swept the competition and earned first place in their division. They also received the "High Points" award for having the highest score of all the middle school and recreational cheer teams combined. 

Deb Kirby, a second-year LMS cheer coach, said the win was such a surprise to all of them. "Really, we went in prepared after working so hard all year long and didn't really expect to win. But they nailed their routine and when it was announced they had earned the highest score, we all cried together," said Kirby.

Kirby came to Little Elm ISD after spending eight years as the varsity cheer coach at Cooper High School in Abilene. In just her second year, Kirby decided to do something that had never been done before at LMS. "As far as I know and from the people I have talked to, no cheer team at the middle school has ever competed. We're the first ones."

Each cheer squad member was awarded National Championship jackets, rings, and medals. The team brought home a National Championship Banner to hang in the gymnasium.
