In the fall of 2010, the Hardrocker cheerleading squad was brought back onto campus for the first time since the 1970's.  Over the last three years, we have been very involved in school events and leadership.  We have participated in various events on campus such as the homecoming parade, coronation and pep rallies.  The squad cheers at home football games and supports all athletics teams throughout their seasons as well.  As a squad we always strive to increase school spirit and sportsmanship at events.  Come out and join us in cheering on the Hardrockers.
