Congratulations to our “Competitors of the Week!” 
New this year, the athletic program has launched a "Competitor of the Week" award through our Character Matters program. Each award session recognizes a different character quality.
ALA athletics promotes character, integrity, virtue, and substance in our players. Character is the difference maker, not only to improve performance, attitude, and teamwork, but also to produce quality people on and off the playing fields.

Competitor of the Week:

Tessa T - Communication & Karisma M - Effort
ALA Cheer continues to work hard, focusing on stunting,  extensions, and cradles. Flyers love their bases, but spotters are super important when learning a new skill, as you can see from the picture. All the time spent in the weight room over the summer and this fall is starting to pay off, as the squad is now strong enough to get 4 flyers in the air.

2018 Coach's Report:

Coyote Cheer had a great fall season and experienced a lot of success, starting with the volleyball court teardown and car wash fundraiser in August which raised funds for cheer uniforms. Cheer worked hard the entire season, learning 50 cheers, 43 of which were completely new for the entire squad, and 9 dances. The squad made a point of performing cheers for visiting teams and their fans and for home town fans at away games, which was a lot of fun and encouraged good sportsmanship. Cheer attended every football game, both home and away this season.

ALA Cheer also showed their support for every sport by cheering at a volleyball game and cross country competition. Both were great experiences the squad looks forward to repeating. Additionally, Cheer participated in the new family BBQ, serving food and mingling with families new to ALA and in the Pink Out volleyball game in October. Cheer took on new duties as a squad this year, decorating the football stands and ticket tables along with our ALA classes.

ALA Cheer started and ended the season with 20 cheerleaders. This season saw the largest squad ALA has ever had, as well as it's first co-ed squad. Cheer's two male cheerleaders traded off in their role as mascot when Mr. Coyote was introduced and became an important part of the school's spiritline. Thank you to everyone who cheered with the squad at games and helped make this season such a great one!
