B-O-N-N-E-V-I-L-L-E, Bonneville Bees! The sound roaring from the gym, The bonneville's cheer team has been working extremely hard this year, cheering on all the other sports teams. The time is coming for the cheerleaders to compete for themselves and for a shot at the state title. Throughout the school year the cheerleaders have been practicing their performances and working diligently everyday.
At the start of the school year, there was a beginning of the year assembly. Stuco ran some games, and the cheerleaders put on a performance for the whole school. Throughout the whole first trimester, the cheerleaders have been putting on their best show. They have been cheering our sports on, and showing how strong our school spirit can be. This year's team is spicing things up and working off last year's loss to Blackfoot High School for the state championship. Head coach Kenzie Howell has stepped back up to coach the team this year. Howell has been coaching at Bonneville for an extremely long time, and will keep coaching for many years to come. Jaci Hegsted, one of the varsity cheerleaders, was interviewed by one of our staff. Hegsted was asked what cheer has done for her, her response was “It has made me more of a responsible person. [I have] definitely grown as a leader and problem solver.” Hegsted has come a long way. She has been cheering since sixth grade and has cheered for Bonneville since her freshman year. Hegsted states “[It is] really the little things that make us state champions.” With the knowledge of why the team was second place last year, the team and the coaches can look back, fix their mistakes, and come back stronger. The playoffs start in January of 2024. Right after the two week long Christmas break, the cheerleaders will start preparing for their new year's resolutions and their new year state title.
The Bonneville cheerleaders are putting in the work this year. They have a real shot at the state title and will work their fingers to the bone to attain that title.
