Cheering for Lipscomb is a sport in and of self, so it’s kind of ironic to have a sports cheer for another sport. I don’t know if you have noticed yet, but cheer can be AWKWARD.
Just think of it; a guy who you see for two hours every day grabbing you and throwing you in the air who hopefully doesn’t drop you isn’t normal. This is why cheerleaders make for such great performers because we pretend like it’s perfectly normal.
So far there are only three different sports teams Lipscomb cheerleaders cheer for:
All of these sports are very fun to cheer for, of course!!!
Ah yes, the first sport I ever cheered for. Cheering for basketball is fast-paced. There also seems to be a lot of random fouls that get called, which can get repetitive sometimes, but you get the hang of it quickly. Basketball can be very unpredictable as well. Take last year, for example. The team would do very well the first half of the game and be winning by 15 points, but when the second quarter came around, it would keep you on the edge of your seat anticipating if they were going to come through or not (which they always did). #ASUNChamps
First off, LOVE!!! I absolutely love soccer, and I love cheering for it. Both women and men’s soccer games always seem to impress me every time I go. Being a cheerleader, we always get front row, and you see some gnarly action! It’s a very intense sport, so cheering for it is just as intense. However, the sad part is we aren’t able to do stunts out on the soccer field, and most of the cheers that we have are intended for basketball. As far as cheering goes we are very limited, but there are other ways to spark the crowd.
As I’m sure you all know, this is our first year cheering our volleyball girls on at the games, and I’m asking myself why we haven’t done it sooner!!! The whole cheer squad would agree that cheering for volleyball is very rewarding. We absolutely LOVE the team and are their biggest fans. The occasional dodging for volleyballs keeps us on our toes, but it’s worth it. In a way, it’s a lot like cheering for basketball, but we don’t perform our dances and are again limited to the cheers we can say, however; there’s no one left sitting at the volleyball games after we win. #startthebus
Therefore, my goal for you is to go to all three sports and cheer at their games and see for yourself which sport is the most fun for you to cheer at.
