Angelina College Cheer Squad holding tryouts in June

LUFKIN, May 18, 2013-- The Angelina College Cheer Squad will be holding tryouts from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., on Saturday, June 15, inside Shands Gymnasium on the AC campus. The tryouts are for those prospective AC students interested in earning scholarship money while performing for the squad beginning in the Fall of 2013.

The Cheer Squad offers opportunities for athletes with former cheer and tumbling experience and helps with defraying tuition costs, earning Physical Education credits and representing the college in the East Texas community by performing public services on behalf of Angelina College.

Cheer coaches Isaiah Harvey and Lisa Griffin will work to create a 12-member group to perform spirit-filled cheers, stunts and dance routines for Angelina College basketball games. Uniforms and practice clothing are provided by the college.

In addition, the squad is looking for a mascot. That tryout will also take place on June 15th.

Applicants must print and complete the application located on the AC web site (www.angelina.edu/Cheer/cheer_squad.html) and submit to Griffin by June 1, 2013. Applicants will need to be prepared to learn a cheer and performing tumbling passes. Only those with cheer and tumbling experience will be evaluated.

For more information, contact Lisa Griffin at 936-676-0588.
