Getting the cheers

Cheerleaders are a staple of sports, from high schools into colleges and with professional basketball and football teams. I find high school sports cheerleaders the best to photograph because of their energy and athleticism.  They add to the game without distraction or hype.

Focusing on the cheeleaders

Floyd County High School’s cheerleading squads add a lot to the athletic events and have been a pleasure to photograph over the past 12 years. They will be with the Lady Buffaloes Saturday evening for the Virginia High School League state basketball 2a semifinals at James Madison University in Harrisonburg.
