B-U cheerleaders to host open house Wednesday; preparing for Region I and Big 10 Championships

TENNERTON – With most fall sports teams wrapping up their campaigns, the Buckhannon-Upshur High School cheerleaders are gearing up for the most important two weeks of their year.

The cheerleading squad will compete in their Region 1 event this Saturday at East Fairmont High School at 10 a.m. and will follow that up with the Big 10 Conference Championships on Thursday, Nov. 10 at Lincoln High School at 6 p.m.

They will host an open house for a meet-and-greet with the community this Wednesday at the high school at 7 p.m.

During the open house, the squad will perform their routine and reveal their new uniforms.

“We are planning to perform our routine, introduce the girls and enjoy a little meet and greet afterward,” said B-U cheer coach Christina Nestor. “We will also be revealing our new uniforms with some old-school color and a modern flare. We definitely would like to thank the community for their support and of course our parents. Without them, none of this would be possible.”

The cheer squad has been busy this fall with practice, cheering at games and fundraising for the new uniforms.

“The team has worked extremely hard,” said Nestor. “We practice five to six days a week on competition including getting ready for football games and fundraising for new uniforms.”

Nestor said the squad will have a high-energy routine set for their two competitions.

“As always we have a high-energy routine with tumbling and stunting to not disappoint anyone,” remarked Nestor. “With every competition we go in wanting to win!! We really want a clean routine and give a 110%.”

Like many other teams at Buckhannon-Upshur, the cheer squad will face some stiff competition in the Region I Championship as well as the Big 10 Championship.

“Our competition at regionals is the best in the state with Brooke, Wheeling Park and Bridgeport in our region,” noted Nestor. “It doesn’t disappoint. The Big 10 is another outstanding competition with five teams last year going to states. It’s always a barn burner.  We expect the same this year outstanding routines all around.”
